Truth? or Consequences!
Boston.com headlines this morning "Bernanke warns of recession". What??? From all the news and headlines and recent front page of a paper in London I thought we were deep into that recession to the point of depression. How many times can Chicken Little scream the sky is falling and believe the sky might fall? When does the chicken realize that screaming it does not make it so? There are those who think the power of the press is absolute power, POWER! They will force their version of reality upon us regardless of the truth. The truth is that words do not reality make. That Depression? Well that only exists among those people who actually read the news and believe it or those that watch the networks and believe that. Those people are mightily depressed. Maybe the Prozac contingent owns the newspapers. Oh well. There are those of us who search for truth, justice and the American Way. (Here is where that blue jersey with the red "S" comes in handy.) We will not be led calmly down that garden path.
