We are being doped with the equivalent of opium with ipods, video games and picture-taking cel phones. Just reading the instruction manuals takes time and we can keep up-grading because the products are deliberately kept cheap for us. A German ordering Halo 2, the new Microsoft Xbox 360 game through Amazon will pay twenty-six percent more than Americans for the same product.
Meanwhile the NY Times has an article today on the wealthy who buy a condo for $20 million and spend years and millions re-modeling. More and more children have no health insurance. This country once had leadership and vision. I don't want to be cynical, but can anyone point to one example of that right now?

And journey outside and enjoy this glorious day.
