HEAR NO EVIL
"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"
Couldn't that same question be relevant to politics, the stock market, daily crime reports, etc? If we do not hear the horror tales exhibited on TV and radio or see it in print, then does our worry and concern even exist?
We know the the stock market responds to gossip and rumor. We know officials are elected by who spins the most convincing tale. We have learned that criminals love the limelight. So if we hear, see or speak no evil, could we possibly keep bad things from happening?
(And, if you prefer to think of something on a lighter note, how long could you function in this world without paper towels? They are almost as important to me as toilet paper and gasoline.
