The Logistician , The View From My Tiny Window, has provided me with an interesting proposition. Basically, turn this blog over to the readers for a day. of course, he assumes I have more than a couple of readers and that these poor, misguided, souls will want to opine on some subject.
I am then left with providing a topic, or range of topics, to titillate your imaginations and induce you to put fingers to keyboard. That's a difficult task. After all, I have enough trouble finding something I want to write about. Still, as I have written in the past, I am very much interested in your opinions and learn from them. So, perhaps I will try.
There is one topic that is near and dear to my heart. It is quasi-political so I have avoided it. I will suspend my ban on politics for the day in order to explore it.
I am no youngster. Over the years I have seen changes in this country that have pleased and horrified me. From the Norman Rockwell America of the 50s and early 60s, through the turbulent protest and cultural wars of the mid 60s and early 70s. The Carter years, The Reagan years, the Clinton years, and the Bush years. The thing that bothers me most is the splintering of America. Over those decades, we have been breaking down into groups. And these groups have grown more and more hostile toward each other.
So, here's my question to you:
Are we disintegrating as a nation?
If so, what can you, or I, do to help patch it up?
