Doug_Remley BS: Thought For the Day--May 12 03 (16) RE: BS: Thought For the Day--May 12 03 13 May 03

In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is in an instution. In the land of the sighted we choose what we shall see, or in weakness allow others to choose.

Last Monday while waiting for my tires to be changed I read the papers while watching CNN and couldn't help but recognize the massive stresses these formats bring into so many lives. All was driven by sales of advertisement, probably, by reporting bad news in the "if it bleeds it leads" category.

There were no great thinkers in whom to find refuge. No JFK proclaiming a Peace Corps or the strides made by Habitats for Humanity. No Schweitzer's or Buddha's or Gandhi. If there were, they weren't reported!
