Over the weekend, I found myself drafted by my comrades in WarTimes/Tiempo de Guerras to quickly turn out about 2000 words about events around the world over the last month. We post one of these "Month in Review" essays at the beginning of each month. So I wrote vigorously.
After the post went up, folks said to me something I've said to other authors: "You sure had a tough month; so much was happening. ..."
I think, if driven to review world affairs regularly, most of us would say that about any month.
I will say February was dramatic. If interested, you can read Uprisings in Venezuela and Ukraine: a Challenge to the US Left at the WarTimes site. While there, you can sign up to receive infrequent emails about peace, justice and what some people are trying to do to make those happy aspirations real.
