Expressing many Americans sentiment to the recent AIG news

Expressing many Americans' sentiment to the recent AIG news

3:25 PM Last night I saw Bill Maher’s Religulous. It was very good, in his signature sarcastic style. Toward the end he said something I really liked, something along the lines of:

What society needs in response to the unanswered questions we have as human beings are not the certitudes these doctrinal religions deliver us, but doubt, because doubt keeps us humble.

3:03 PM I wanted to visit Jim Corbett National Park when I was in India, but unfortunately it was closed during the summer.

2:55 PM It’s almost comical reading reviews of things online. Take digital cameras for example. All the forum sites follow a similar pattern, almost like a sitcom:

  1. Some newbie asks “What’s the best DSLR for so-and-so purpose?”
  2. People start replying with the following:
    • Choose Canon
    • Choose Nikon
    • It doesn’t matter what body you choose, what matters is the lens
    • Try them out and choose whatever functions the best for you
    • Choose whatever fits the best in your hands
    • “I bought my non-Nikon-non-Canon x years ago and I just love it!”
    • “Stop worrying about the equipment! Go take pictures!”

Also, like watching a sitcom, I and others read these threads, even though they’re predictable in every way, because of…boredom, I suppose.
