In case you have not heard, and I doubt if you have not, because it is all over the international media, a python attacked and ate a female farmer whole, entirely, in central Indonesia. The snake was found fifty yard away digesting the victim’s fully clothed body. The python was only 23 feet in length. Because the woman was Muslim she had to be buried before nightfall. A male farmer was eaten in the same way about one year ago. Through my painstaking research I have found unlike Donald Trump snakes do not discriminate, they don’t care if you are rich or poor, farmer or city dweller, or even an emigrant. The message here is this, if you are a tourist in Indonesia do not go on farm tours.*
Yes, indeed, the Israeli Air Force has state-of-the-art F-35s, 23 of them to be exact, and the Israel armed forces have the latest updated equipment gladly profitably provided by the U. S. and E.U. But, what do the Palestinians in Gaza have? They have balloons and kites with small incendiary devices attached that are blown by the westerly winds toward Israel and Jordan recently causing several destructive forest fires. This Gazans strategy goes hand and glove very well with slingshots, knives, rocks, and burning tires.
Some Americans have lost their moral compass? Well, let’s get it back Americans. I have the solution. It is with Optical Focus, the ZYTO, the Marine Compass Corporation, and eBay. Prices for handheld range from $22.95 to $67.16, $90.18 and $119.95. Do not be caught without your moral compass.

* Sixty or so years ago in Southeast Asia it was not uncommon to see city street vendors selling tonics and medicines with a six or seven-foot long python ensconced in front of their box stands. Usually a photographer was near to snap a photo for a price for a tourist or on-looker, quite often with the snake partly wrapped around his or her body. As a lad I took such a picture with a mate and kept it for years. The reptile was of course anesthetized with food or drug and hopefully quite tame and pliable. And I remember the wooing and awing of the gathering crowd as the vendor would reveal a ten or twelve footer from his bag or box for display.
