Today I was driving and listening to NPR as they talked about politics in Chicago and then in Washington D.C. Later a program came on about Sacramento political doings. A few days ago I read a blog about Advertising and how it started with the snake in the Garden of Eden. All this spinning of ideas and words - it all gives me a giant headache. Words used to feel friendly. Now I feel like they are something to be wary of.
Fine print - be ware
Trust me - be ware
News - be ware
Words from the mouth of any one over the age of 7 - be ware
How to find friendly words again?
Set the example - tell the truth
Say what you feel
Say when you don't know
Ask and then LISTEN
