Obviously, been out of the vertical blog tunnel for a while. Blogging is like that, energy dissipates, interest wanes. And sometimes that thing called life comes calling. But I admit I was quite taken aback, discovering that one Rosie O'Donnell, is promulgating turgid Stormfront talking points. On the air, live, during her morning show the View, on ABC.
As we actually step forward, into the future, my fear is that many will not possess the tools. To know, see, or understand media. To mechanically sort and process electronic data. And will merely gulp it down like lemonade, smacking their lips.

And to add to the lovely piquancy emanating from the jowls of Mrs. O'Donnell? We get: lets start here ok…go slow remember 2 breathe use google.
Yep, uh huh. It's all true because Rosie found it in Sergei and Larry's cash box [the same one that excludes this blog ... Anechoic Room, from their search/link/display algorithm (I'm usually first or second on Yahoo)].
The mind does not boggle so much as recoil. As the world coalesces into the formless bright light of universal happy thoughts. And people sit anaesthetized in front to their glowing wall sized flat panel TV's. Watching Rosie. The promise of hope begins to seem less than attainable. Bush has become Hitler, the Joos .... Schutzstaffel, and Leni Riefenstahl? A poor misunderstood dancer.
Where's my keffiyeh?
