The Waiting Game
Across the Cornfield, across the nation, across the globe, people are waiting to see if Congress grinds to inaction which will result in government shut down one week from today.
The world waits to see the outcome of the attack and taking of hostages at the mall in Nairobi, Kenya.
The world waits to see if Syria will comply with demands that it follows through in turning over its chemical weapons to international control.
The world waits to see if a true thaw is occurring with US/Iranian relations which will lead to an end in the game of nuclear proliferation and uncertainty, threatening to further destabilize the Middle East.
In Chicago, people are waiting to see if the violence will be quelled or if the murderous trend will continue.
Across the country people wait for the roll out of the Affordable Care Act's mandated health insurance exchanges next Tuesday and whether the exchanges, the web sites, will creak and gnarl to a crash or run like a well-oiled machine.
Everywhere you turn there is a wait.
There are many more issues and concerns on which we and the world wait for resolution.
From the Cornfield, the old saying that the wait is the worst part until the outcome emerges is ringing true.
In this digital age of rapid fire interaction, how long will people continue to put up with the wait?
