Oh Yeah...........Does America Want CHANGE? Hope so....

The U.S. is also a country in which blissful ignorance is celebrated, and intellectual excellence (the key to 21st century advancement) is not just given short shrift, but is ridiculed. Paris Hilton and Britney Spears are cultural icons.
The average American watches television a mind-numbing 4 1/2 hours a day.What Americans really have to decide is what kind of country they want.

This is not only unfair, but self-defeating. The U.S. cannot thrive with its fabulous wealth concentrated at the top and the middle class on its knees. (No one even bothers to talk about the poor anymore.) How to correct this imbalance is one of the biggest questions facing the country.Op-Ed Columnist - Beyond Election Day - NYTimes.com
