While I could never rival Tom Sowell - who occasionally publishes similarly titled columns - here are some interesting issues Tom might not be inclined to mention. Comment away!
Have retailers ruined Christmas? Or are our baser instincts turning us into crazed animals hunting cheap prices on the latest toys? How much responsibility do retailers have in creating problematic supply/demand situations? Is this like "hunting over bait"
How did the unnecessary slaughter of 4 Americans morph into a tawdry “sex scandal”? Beyond media complicity and political malfeasance, who else should share responsibility? What bona fide reason might anyone have for believing the “investigation” will turn up anything damning or something similar will not happen again? And again?
Do network football game announcers always favor the OTHER school?
Is it OK to lie to kids about “Santa Claus”? Or is it better to let kids know it’s all a fairy tale, part of the Holiday tradition – but it’s Mom and Dad, who loved them so much, they bought them these cool presents?
If talking/writing about “negative things” (economy, jobs, government, politics) is such a turn-off, how does one consider and confront serious problems facing us?
Of all the people ingesting Network News (from any source), how many are aware they are being deceived, manipulated and used?
