I've been so absorbed in the reading and writing of main stream and Internet Media, plus watching Television news, I didn't notice that in conversation in my public places people never discussed things like the Iraq War or 9/11. It was brought home to me when just sitting there as usual with my nose in a paper, reading sports mind you, a man blurted out that it was time to end this lousy war and bring those boys home. I looked over and saw a regular fellow dressed in casual clothes sitting with his wife. But things returned to normal when no one really seemed to want to discuss it further with him. The restaurant owner, who had been standing by that table, right after politely excused himself saying he had to go take care of things in his office. But my curiosity had been piqued. So I decided to then, without causing a ruckus, in the next few days to just casually ask people I knew or met about these things, these burning questions of the times in Media and Internet.
