Miners Freed to face New Torture

Wonderful news that all the miners trapped so far below ground have been freed. Now for the feeding frenzy of news-mongers. I can’t help but feel sorry for them. These were once men who were important to their families alone. Now they will be exposed to the world in ways that at first may feel wonderful. Fame and fortune await them. But the downside is that they will be also exposed to those interested in taking their what they can, using them. It has already been revealed that long-lost relatives have shown up to claim donated items. It isn’t a new phenomenon, certainly. Look at Haiti. How many billions have been sent there, to what result? Look at the monies stolen in Iraq. People are out for themselves. After spending over sixty days locked in the earth’s vault, these freed men must face new trials they never could have foreseen. Sadly, a new kind of torture.

having an opinion about anything

Isn’t it ironic that in this day when it isn’t PC to “judge” others or to have an opinion that differs from the way the “majority” of folks out there think, that blogging is so popular. Blogging is all about opinion, a straight up “I believe in what I’m typing”. I read blogs. Not a lot, I don’t have the time. It is odd. That’s all I’m writing tonight.
