Daily Bread for 2.16.22: Of Putin and Threats Closer to Home

Good morning.

Wednesday in Whitewater will be cloudy with a high of 48.  Sunrise is 6:48 AM and sunset 5:28 PM for 10h 39m 43s of daytime.  The moon is full with 100% of its visible disk illuminated.

 On this day in 1960, the U.S. Navy submarine USS Triton begins Operation Sandblast, setting sail from New London, Connecticut, to begin the first submerged circumnavigation of the globe.

It may be, very soon, that Russian dictator Vadimir Putin murders thousands of innocent Ukranians in a war.  Pehaps he will relent in his revanchist aims, but he has not relented in Syria, the Donbas, or with his own people murdered at home or abroad. 

And yet, and yet, even if there should be no war, a plain truth about Putin bears repeating:

America’s insurrectionists and seditionists, the diehard MAGA men, are like this, too: they torment the vulnerable, and draw encouragement from the diffidence their torment induces in others.

It’s no wonder that so many of these fellow travelers admire Putin: they and he think alike.
