{excerpt from Where Have All The Leaders Gone]

A Hell of a Mess

So here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.

We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the country.

We're losing the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.

Gas prices are skyrocketing, and nobody in power has a coherent energy policy.

Our schools are in trouble.

Our borders are like sieves.

The middle class is being squeezed every which way.

These are times that cry out for leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: "Where have all the leaders gone?"

Where are the curious, creative communicators?

Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, competence, and common sense?

I may be a sucker for alliteration,

but I think you get the point.
