Meandering thoughts on the news of today, over a cup of coffee
"Protest" seems to be a trendy word in the news of late. Countries in turmoil, states embattled in grudge matches over unions and people unhappy with the current state of their world. It is a curious thing to watch it all unfold, and I find myself wondering if there is anything in my world that I feel strongly enough to protest. I suppose the things I feel strongly about are not new however, so a protest from me at this point would seem like an act of a man jumping on the protest bandwagon.
I could protest the education system, pushing my opinions of how teachers should be paid (and paid well) based on performance. I could draw comparisons to the education system in Japan, where the teacher is more than a classroom authority figure, they are part of the student's life. I could spend time researching models for new programs and present them in a positive fashion. Or I could just wear a sandwich board and stand out in front of the school district office. "Who has that kind of time?", I ask myself, sipping my coffee while I sit on my potential for more than half an hour reading the paper.
There are a few more things I can come up with, but none that really move me to a protest mentality. Besides, I am pretty happy with my world, all things considered. I voice my opinion in very subtle ways, and show my support for the things that matter. I am also employed, and expected to show up to work, so protesting for any extended period is not going to be conducive to caring for my family. I guess I am still in the apathy mode.
Scanning the other important articles, I find an article summarizing George Clooney's view on his recent invitation from the California Democratic party. I find his honesty and candor refreshing, although I am a life-long member of the Republican party. Looking beyond party lines, reading his words as he tells Newsweek that he has lived his life in manner that would preclude him from ever being involved in politics, I find a refreshing confession of human nature. "I drank the bong water", he says, joking that this would be his campaign slogan. Maybe you did George, but the reality is that you are not alone in the world of politics. It's just a matter of when the public finds the indiscretions, not that they exist.
So kudos to our hometown boy who has made good. He has been showing up all over town recently, while filming his latest movie about a dirty politician called "The Ides of March". My wife and I will go see it, we always do. We even saw "Leatherheads", but I won't hold that against him since "O Brother Where Art Thou" made up for any bad movies he might ever make.
