slow of mind
sometimes i feel kinda clueless. so when i notice something i always have to wonder. has it always been this way? or did i just now notice? anywho, today's slow-of-mind moment came reading headlines. why is it that headlines often say exactly the opposite of what the article says? examples abound. hell, just pick an article. any one. most likely the headline isn't supported by the content. i'm pretty sure this says something bad. but does it say something bad about the headline producers? or the headline consumers? or both? course it's not just the media. it's also the gov'mint. the classic example is the clean water act. the headline suggests it's a bunch of regulations to make our waterways cleaner. strongly suggests. presumably by tightening rules and adding restrictions. in reality, it loosened rules and removed restrictions. wee.
