Geography for Americans

Americans maintain pre-Obama levels of self-centeredness

November 29, 2008 International

What was your first response when you heard about the terrorist acts of Mumbai?

The economic meltdown hasn't altered Americans' self-centered world view. (yay?) According to Buzzfeed, America's top five Google searches during the Mumbai attacks included "sears, pam dawber, mork and mindy." Two victims of the Mumbai attacks were Americans Alan Scherr and his daughter Naomi. The pair were traveling with a religious group called the "Synchronicity Foundation," which managed to be the 4th most popular search term.

All blogs are really just small snapshots of a person's mind, heart and soul as they evolve together through life....

Small bits of the thread of life we weave together into the fabric of ourselves, in the hope we will make sense of our existence, individual and collective.

On this page, is the cloak I have fashioned from my fabric to warm myself in a universe which often makes little sense.

Inside my cloak, it is warm enough to face the blistering cold winds of the insane world in which I find myself.

If you find some a bit of 'the good stuff' here, it has been my pleasure.
