    Carl is one of my favorite people. Sad he had to leave us so soon.

    And really, there is an obvious effort being made at the "dumbing down of Americans".

    I mean, just look at the news media!

    Some people were saying awhile back that American youth had a lot of technology but used little of it better their mind.

    Yep, they know how to use a computer but are beginning to forget how to use their mind.

    Just suck in whatever data government and the media present to them.

    Look at the news media sites today. Half of the news is about Hollywood, the actors/actresses, the TV programs, etc. This is the news today. All fantasy.

    Most people don't have a grasp of history etc. They make fun of that fact on late night TV all the time.

    Yep. And as the saying goes: Those who do not know history are condemned to repeat it.
