A Society Missing the Boat

The gun debate swirls, taking the pressure off Congress and the President to fix the economy.

Lance Armstrong admits he lied. I'm crushed. I forgive him.

The penalty for allegedly stealing internet information exceeds that for manslaughter. Knowledge, therefore, is more important than people.

Wow, what a wild past few days it has been.

We have lost perspective and become a society run governed special interests.

Guns are not the problem--people are the problem. We are living in a time when people are not well equipped to handle the stresses of life. The media surround them with inappropriate responses to stress and their mental health is compromised enough not to be able to separate imagination from reality.

For right now, given the problems in our economy and society--guns are the problem. At least we are persecuting an inanimate object. Other societies have persecuted ethnic groups.

In the end, the real problems will continue to grow worse until they no longer can be masked.

I guess the next few months will be very telling.
