I had a very interesting conversation last night. I finally got to IM someone whose blog I read for a few months. This person lives in the hinterlands of Canada, so yes technology stretches pretty much everywhere now. It is interesting how people know so much about things they might not have known about at all 20 years ago. When some person in Canada knows exactly what is going on in America, even better then a lot of Americans, it is scary, but for the better I think. It is just sad that some Americans can't be bothered to know what is going on in their own country. Personally, I never understood the fascination with radio hosts like Rush limbaugh or Sean Hannity. Why would someone need to have someone else tell them what to think? What ever happened to thinking for yourself? Or do some people enjoy being part of a flock? I know I don't, and I don't see why others would, unless they find comfort in numbers. The thing I don't get even more is the blind faith that people have. On the last note, I'll post next time what a person I admire greatly said about blind faith.
