CBS News did a piece last night on South Africa’s celebration of Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday. This world has few truly great men, these days, and that man is certainly one of them. It reminded me of watching the movie Invictus. Revenge may be sweet, but it is short lived and forgiveness is so much more powerful, and does so much more good.

Compare the tenor of governance portrayed in that movie with that which we experience in the “seat of democracy and freedom” today. This is a country of little men, prating about trivia.
