Jon Carroll -

I was reading yesterday that in the "old" days, we had very few decisions to make.  We usually continued the inherited profession of our parents.  We married who our families chose for us.  We were born, lived, and died, often in the same place, among the same people.  Now we change jobs and inherit more information in a day than our ancestors did in a lifetime.   So, no wonder we can't pay attention to everything or get outraged where and when we might and ought.  Enjoy Jon Carroll today.
