Ukraine: What to Do?

So, I just got back from lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel to see online a report that Russia is now shelling military and civilian emplacements in Eastern Ukraine. Two days ago, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Russians have been shooting at Ukrainians for years. More than 14,000 Ukrainians have already been killed by the Russians, according to this report.

What to do?

First, send the Ukrainians all the arms they want to buy.

Second, do not send one single American soldier to fight and die in Ukraine. Ukrainians are tough as hell, and they have a country as big as Texas. They can defend themselves.

Third, spend as much time as possible with the people you love. Don’t even think of neglecting your family. The time we have with them is precious.

Fourth, spend as much time as you can with those who are your close friends. Close friends are like gold.

Fifth, do not panic about your stocks. They will fluctuate but they will always come back unless there is full-scale nuclear war, and, in that case, you’re dead anyway.

Sixth, pray for peace.

Seventh, stock up on bottled water and gasoline.

I’ll have suggestions for Mr. Biden tomorrow.

Last, but far from least, my sincere condolences to the family of P.J. O’Rourke, an American treasure who left us far too soon, causing immense sorrow and. pain.
