A Sideways Glare at Contemporary Society
These days we are still distinguishing between our regular friends (notice I didn’t say real) and our electronic ones. That’s not going to go on forever. Grumble all you want about the passing of an age, but very soon, my buddy in Mumbai is going to be just as important to me as the guys I physically see every week. It’s that Global Village Marshall McLuhan was talking about way back in the day — before anybody had ever heard of personal computers (forget Smart Phones and Social Media) and I’m here to tell you we haven’t even scratched the surface.
So to that end, I met a girl on Pinterest. I don’t know who she is or where she lives, but she’s obviously been hired as the spokeperson for the politically moderate right – and she’s doing a great job.
I can hardly wait to see what she’ll do next.
