I am an 86 year-old retired educator turned writer. After turning 80 I wrote two books;
The Diary of a Dying Man [How to prepare for and cope with aging] and Words of Wisdom Through the Ages [What the wise have to say about life and living]. Prior to those books I wrote a whistle-blowing book titled That Stubborn Seed of Hope castigating top level educators for engaging in unlawful and unethical activities, and God, Where Are You?, and intellectual argument for the existence of an Intelligent Designer.
I currently play competitive racquetball three times a week and ride an 1100 cc motorcycle daily. One of my “hobbies” is to read OpEd News every evening. I see this as one of the most important ways to inform citizens about important news and views that don’t appear in the corporate-controlled media. The Humanoids running our country and uninformed citizens are what will do our country in as it did the Holy Roman Empire; too many of us are like sheep being led to the slaughter house. Where sheep innocently eat grass, totally unaware of the fate awaiting them, so too do many of our citizens eat the crap tossed to them by the media in the form of filtered news, sports, soap operas, situation comedies and “reality pap shows,” like Big Brother and The Survivor. In short, P.R. corporations do not target the “thinkers” amongst us since they have figured out that most Americans are “brain dead” as epitomized by the kinds of commercials we are subjected to. Why tell viewers the mechanical merits of a car? Just stick a smiling babe with big boobs in front of it. Thank God for the mute button!
Two of my favorite quotations are: “Lie to me once and I’ll never believe you again!” and “Don’t just tell me that you love me, show me!”
