The past emerges and points to the pulse still beating today.
While still on the subject of karma, in coming upon a youtube video segment of "Network," an HBO series in 2012, there was no way to ignore it. We posted on the page itself, then on our FaceBook page. Now we're coming here with it. If you've never seen it, this clip is the most poignant and impressive. If you miss transparency and honesty and are the kind of patriot who knows we need a government we can trust and honor, please follow this link to view a piece of that episode: https://youtu.be/ZPHSXUS0_1c
We're also posting comments we've made in one place or another:
Posted August 2 on youtube of Jeff Daniels as Will McAvoy on HBO’s “Network.”
Some of us saw this series and were sad to realize it wouldn't continue. That was 5 years ago--hard to believe. Also hard to believe is, for all its honesty and straightforward, right-on-the-money pulse of the American people and our increasingly fed-up, "not-going-to-take-it-anymore" revulsion of the mainstream press, of the puppeteers that run the news, not one has grasped how much there is to gain by employing "real" reporters and promoting news we all crave (you know, the honest, courageous, pertinent kind). Otherwise, we're left with no choice but to seek it from British, Chinese or Russian sources -- and that's humiliating and embarrassing. By the way, this video isn't an opening scene from the series, but if you take the time to listen, you'll notice the reluctance of Will McAvoy (played brilliantly, really, by Jeff Daniels) to state what most of us feel as an uneasy prod of truth, that other countries can make the claim of greatness as well--and if there's a judge (on our blog we call it karma, or a universal law) and a conscience that hasn't already been seared and broiled dry, at a minimum, we'd do better as a country by watching not only our actions but our words before they come back to haunt us (words are alive, don't you know).
