World Collides

As Papa Francisco touches down on U.S. soil for the first time, he’ll almost cross paths with China’s Xi Jinping at the White House and on the Upper East Side. Pope Francis via Cuba. Chairman Xi flying in from Seattle. Old cultures colliding with high tech century. Russia helping us fight ISIS with Syria’s Assad and Iran. Strange alliances. Maybe for the better. New World Order.

Meanwhile, is El Trumpo tapping General Petraeus for his foreign policy team? And as Joe Nocera concludes in today’s New York Times, don’t we all wish Mike Bloomberg had run? I still do. June 4 SideTrek.
