Bill Maher: New Rule: Not Everything in America Has to Make a Profit

This link from Bill Maher’s commentary on Huffington Post is well written. In fact Bill’s commentary reminds me of something I learned when touring George Eastman’s home in Rochester, New York. Eastman, the founder of Kodak, made a lot of money in World War I as a government contractor. Do you know what he did after the war? He gave all the money back. That’s the sign of a real patriot. Don’t you wish there was less emphasis on profit in our country and more emphasis on helping people and truly performing a service.

Death of the news

Has anyone noticed that news is dying?  I don’t mean that there aren’t any stories to be covered. There are more stories now than there ever have been but those stories are being covered more and more by people like you and me. We’re blogging, tweeting, texting and in the process we’ve made the talking heads on cable news and the pundits at newspapers increasingly irrelevant. Newspapers are literally dying in front of our eyes and I believe more and more net generation people get their news from Drudge, Huffington and elsewhere.  What do you think?
