Fog Facts

"In the information age there is so much information that sorting and focus and giving the appropriate weight to anything have become incredibly difficult. Then some fact, or event, or factoid mysteriously captures the world's attention and there's a media frenzy. Like Clinton and Lewinsky. Like O. J. Simpson. And everybody in the world knows everything about it. On the flip side are the Fog Facts, important things that nobody seems able to focus on any more than they can focus on a single droplet in the mist. They are known, but not known."

--from THE LIBRARIAN by Larry Beinhart

Can we blame the media for this? Yes. They're led by a gang of creeps. Can we do anything about it? Yes, throw them out. And while you're at it, throw your TV out the window too.

P.S. Helpful Tip #47: If TV is too heavy to lift, just unplug the cable in the back and cover it with a lovely cloth.
