  • Randy I am sure the telephone is in the same category, once egalitarian now a a tool filled with vice. And what shall be done with that?

    It's only natural, now we see the Fb is laced with banner ads, much like the local paper. Once radio was a free service for information, could we not say the same thing when we hear a blow hard spew his personal tirades at the opposition, what have they done to my free service? Magazines are full of every strange obsession and all for advertising. Sensational is what the operators of all these media hope will become their fare to the public eye, and all the hoopla is finally to show a prospective client the numbers of viewers, listeners, subscribers. All good ideas get dwindled down to ad space in the final annualize, facebook wants people to get riled up, it bring in the eye balls.

    Shall we say the same of a if it bleeds it leads service, one where all the opinion pages are full of disgruntled readers constantly nipping at each others points of view...oops, guilty...

    Maybe we just yearn for that real one on one again.
