I usually write my blogs on Wednesday, but yesterday I participated in the blackout by WordPress and other internet sites in protest of the bills in Congress (SOPA/PIPA) that could severely impact the free exchange of thoughts and ideas on the internet.
I do have a few random thoughts from the week, however.
- Stop censorship.
- To the cruise line captain who abandoned his ship: “To see the right and not do it is cowardice.” (Confucius)
- To Paula Deen: Paula had a “teachable moment” opportunity when she learned of her Type II Diabetes diagnosis. Unfortunately that moment was 3 years ago.
- I heard a representative from AARP state that Baby Boomers hate to be called “seniors”. So what do we want to be called?
- I am reading Never Say Die The Myth and Marketing of the New Old Age, by Susan Jacoby. It is an eye-opening book for anyone to read.
