So, anyone who knows me, knows I am not a very opinionated, out-spoken person. Oh wait, that's a big lie...everyone who knows me, knows I AM an opinonated, out-spoken person. I am usually the one with the differing political view, restaurant recommendation, movie suggestion, etc.,etc.
I do try though not to get too into political debates and discussions, but sometimes I hear or read something that I think needs to be commented on. I still remember the night sitting at the Vetter's years back and Mark was having a conversation with another person, who I don't think I had ever met before (Kyndra, this would be Dug), and he and Mark were discussing, gambling along with a variety of other topics. Now, when I don't know someone at all, I will usually try to be a little calm and reserved, but whatever it was that night, I unleashed on Dug and his opinions. No holds barred. Poor Dug. I'm not sure he knew what to make of me and my opinions ...but you know, I didn't care. Thankfully I think he was okay with me, because every time he saw me after that he said hi and we'd always chat!
Anyway, the point of my rant is an article I read today. Even if there is something I don't like, or don't "get", I can usually see how someone else might like it (i.e. modern art), however what I read today...I don't think I am a closed-minded person, and maybe someone might think I am being closed-minded on this, but I will be okay with that label this one time. I don't know how anyone can see this as anything other than horrific (I will keep my opinion to my one word of horrific because I am not sure blogspot has enough room for me to elaborate - although I would really love to go off with all of the ideas spinning through my head right now).
Take a read - tell me what you think.
