"Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."
Well, the 3rd B-day of the blog has passed (2nd). Over that time the views increased 100% again but that unfortunately was hindered in a rapid drop in etiquette which resulted in removing the ability of anonymous visitors to post.
I was on the Christmas Holiday break from the blog but I got one of those "gossip" emails trying to "teach me" about someone. As many times as I try to reiterate the purpose of this blog it always seems to get lost no matter how many comments I have to delete and explain.
"Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."Remember this. This quote is not meant to be mean but rather to show where I desire the conversation here would lead. We, as a citizenry, can spend our time actually discussing the merits of ideas or continuing to waste our time in school yard behavior by forming into cliques and trashing others who are outside of them.
People will come and go. Ideas we institute, or conversely those we fail to, will long outlast the people we try to knock down.
For those with more interest in discussing people, blogs are free to create for such a purpose.
I wish you all the best this holiday season. See you in the new year.
