One of the many things I truly miss from my youth is privacy, reality, truthfulness by those around me, my ability to be private when I desire to. All of these are close to nonexistent today and for that we all are the lesser for it. Many new things like the Internet are good for the majority, but that majority must be able and have the desire to police what is on it and what is believed from it.
People today seem to be completely unaware of anything that does not please them. People yell, scream, sue and generally make an ass out of themselves - frequently and for no good reason.
I agree I am getting older and I am getting much more cynical and tend to live in the past, but I will do so with my name on what I may write or say or send. And I will continue to watch what I like and not watch what I do not on TV. I will not go to anything on the Internet that I do not like or have faith in. And I will be the final arbitrator of just what I want to watch, see, do and live. And so may you.
