From the Momentarily Off-Topic Files
This image medley found its way to me today after making the rounds through the email-sphere. Admittedly, I couldn't verify its authenticity. But, given a comparison of the deltas between claims in the images I'm in a position to verify (e.g., U.S., Mexico, Germany) and those I can surmise from world news and events (e.g., South Asia, Central Africa), I was comfortable to share this with you with at least an anecdotal perspective.
You'll likely find your own interpretation. For my part: Given the disparity between the images towards the top of the stack, as compared to the image at the bottom of the stack, I'll count my blessings today.
