Hi Kevin and happy Sunday -

I agree, 100% agree.

Simply and well stated.

Peace and love

I agree. It explains why our media isn't "great."

Utah Savage said...

May also explain why I'm not "great." People fascinate me. And in examining our own and other's lives (remember these are people) are we not contemplating "ideas?"

There is always at least one contrarian asshole in the bleachers. Sorry.

You're over-thinking it. :)

I think the point is that some people don't think about ideas or events at all.

Grrreat quote!

The insipid cult of personality is a little tiresome sometime in the media - even during the historical election last November we heard more dialogue in the MSM around Michelle Obama's choice of clothing and the ongoing Palin family drama than we did around the ideas that were being put forward by the candidates to meet unique 21st century challenges.

Equally irksome is the tired and outmoded ( i.e. liberal vs conservative) framework that is used to frame most political discourse.
