A Saturday Post: No Matter What Katie Couric Thinks
But sometimes we’re the one out of focus.
So I’m spending Friday night with a bottle of wine, some girl with a fake name and Bill Maher.
He mentions the fact that the “free Speech” segment on the CBS Nightly news asked him if he had something to say.
He wanted to talk about religion.
They told him he couldn’t talk about that.
So much for “Free Speech.”
Free Speech is not a privilege, it’s a right.
I don’t have to agree with you but I do have to stand up for your right to say it.
Unfortunately too many people want other folks to shut up, making it uncomfortable for other folks to stand up.
I also watched the new Survivor this week.
I loved it. But I don’t know if the rest of the country will.
Of course the Asians won the puzzle challenge, of course the Black people kicked out the strong male and of course the White guy was completely confused why he got exiled after stealing other people’s shit.
Even as individuals we are sometimes slaves to things we can’t control.
Starting Monday I am going to be running video from the trip to New Orleans some of the readers (and myself) financed.
Both Travis and Loren saw the same things but each put together their own versions of the same story. Some of it will be shocking. Some of it will be typical. But I think the entire thing is arresting.
Will it make a difference?
Probably not, but that’s not the point.
The point is that we are privileged to live in a world and at a time where you can broadcast your views to almost everyone.
And we all have different views and opinions.
I hope this project inspires you to stand up and tell yours.
