Radio, was prayers needed

Speaking of radio, did anyone else hear the NPR news staff and commentators read the Declaration of Independence this morning? At first I was annoyed [I am easily annoyed at 6:00 AM], but by the end I was quite taken by it. If you want, you should be able to hear it at www.npr.org [click on "archives" and look around]. There seem to be some policy similarities between George the III and George the W--particularly regarding habeas corpus.

radio, etc. Even the morning shows now are full of things that were simply

Personally (showing my age), I think TV and Hollywood are
exacerbating the situation and our freedom of speech (which I value)
has been distorted as a permission to produce worse and worse violent
trash for consumption by younger and younger humans...after a while,
the horror subsides and they become inured to violence; think it is
normal...then, that spills over into other aspects of life.  Consider
the prevalence of road rage and other sorts of "rages" that seem to
happen every day now.
