[Shane Ross] "Yeah, who has time to properly vet or resource anything?"

Shane has nailed it. There is no vetting. I remember when we all laughed at the notion that "if it bleeds, it leads". Turns out, those were the good old days...

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans believe everything that Biff and Bambi say in the media. Never mind that Biff and Bambi know nothing about anything they're reporting on.

I spend time talking to a lot of younger people and I'm amazed at how little they know about anything. It doesn't matter what current event, they have half the information if I'm lucky, and forget knowing anything about any history before their birth.

I asked one young guy wearing a Che Guevara Shirt "Where do you get a T-Shirt with a mass murderer on it"? His response was "what?". He knew absolutely nothing about Che, he just bought it because it was in his words "a fashion statement". When I gave him a history lesson (both sides) he was speechless.

This last week at the pub, a guy who lived in South Africa was filling in the blanks on the other side of Nelson Mandela. I could tell that everyone at the table hadn't heard any of this. They only knew the fairytale version of Mandela's life. I appreciate many things about Mandela, but I also knew the other side of him.

I think knowing things help you to appreciate them more...
