Here is an article from the Wall St Journal you may find interesting in light of today's happenings across the country, in colleges, in legislatures, on television and in public areas.

In our 'Happy Days' of the mid 50's, respect was not only taught but expected.  A discussion on the political topics of the day spoke of facts that were verifiable and never printed until confirmed by at least three sources.  One would make an informed decision on the candidates, vote and wait for the results.  The morning after the election, we would have breakfast, read the paper and go to work.  Today we have far to much data coming at us.  We can't trust what we read, see or hear.  I believe Rockwell would still find a way to bring us back into focus with yet another of his beautiful, commentary paintings and be spot on target.

Truer words have not been spoken. AND our wonderful Capitalism has turned into Greedism
