I used to spend hours in a library going from book to fascinating book ...
Today has been a very weird day for us and a series of events had me looking up the definition of Balkanized.
THAT led to Banana Republic and it is THIS definition that just synopsized and sat me down for some time.

Plenty for comparison nit much in the contrast arena.... more’s the shame
