An Insight

Monday's Cape Cod Times printed a message from Edward R. Morrow which grabbed my attention.

"Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices---just recognize them".

Compare and contrast that kind of message with what we are offered today on TV and radio, as evidenced by the likes of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

Are we not diminshed as a people when and if enough of us ascribe to what these charlatans tell us is their truth? They make $Millions by preying on the paranoia of those who are easily led to believe the emotional rants of those who claim to be concerned about their fears.

There is a need to recognize the blatant prejudices of the far right wing nuts.
