  • They are only words — or are they?

    Each of us has spoken our first words. None of us has spoken our last words.

    The first minutes and hours of a newborn’s life hold so much hope and promise as we think thoughts such as “this child may change the world.” Then life is lived and most people seem to die “common.”

    If the media are indeed “the enemy of the people,” so is democracy. We don’t have to have it, this democratic element to our republic.

    China is doing fine without it, and Russia is making a comeback without it. Even North Korea, with an iron curtain of its own around its oppressed citizenry, is on the rise on the world stage.

    These are nations run by dictators who control their people by limiting free speech and keeping a tight grip on the media.
