Derisive diatribes about the state of the nation, nation states and swerving leftward
12 August 2005
CNN tonight had a short piece on how the U.S. is falling way behind South Korea and other countries in terms of its internet infrastructure. Anyone familiar with the lightning-swift efficiency of the internet elsewhere can attest to the fact that this is clearly the case. As important as the internet has become to everyday work and international commerce, I find it odd that the U.S. has failed to invest even a modest amount of money. This is one area where a Gore victory in 2000 would have probably made a world of difference.
