This & That

The name for this blog was inspired by “One-eyed Jack” Williams who had a radio program in Phoenix, Arizona about 35 years ago.... His “Quarter Hour of This and That”. Everyday he started out the program with the statement. “It is a beautiful day in Arizona and I suggest, leave us all enjoy it.” It did not mater if it was raining or sunny, in the middle of a sand storm or cold and miserable. It was always a beautiful day. It is still my favorite way to start the day.

The Truth is Hard to Find.

Opinions, Opinions, Opinions...everyone has an opinion. But my question is, on what facts did we form our opinions? Few of us, take the time to gather enough facts on a given subject to have an opinion that means a great deal. Most of the time, we get our information from biased sourses who have thrown in a few fragments of facts that cause us to jump to their conclusions, and then we pass it on as truth. I feel that this is one of our most serious problems facing any thinking person today...how can we find the truth.
Finding the truth is not easy. Recently I stumbled on a site called Responsible Thinking. With out taking sides, Dr. Horn has offered some good ideas, if we are really serious about doing something right instead of just passing on non-truths which only fuel the controversy and divides the world when most of us are only looking for ways to make things better.

If you are interested in reading what Dr. Horn has to sayclick here. I would really like to participate in a serious discussion on the subject.
