But you can see the results of our post literate society all around us. People can't think, and they are swindled by simplistic slogans repeated by politicians ad nauseum.
    Hmm. You have a good point there...I need to revisit Allan Bloom's The Closing of the American Mind.

    Big Little Lies. An aggressive act between two 6 year olds sets the ball in motion for a murder. We are given tantalizing glimpses of the crime in the form of flash-forwards, but no real clues as to who killed whom. Most of the characters are so unlikeable that I hope they all beat each other to death with nail-studded baseball bats. Simply shooting would be too merciful. Stars Reece Witherspoon, Laura Dern, and Nicole Kidman.

    Victoria, the BBC Series. Is it my imagination, or is Prince Albert made up to look like Prince, the rock star?
