We’re travelling westbound on Curry Ford Road, a four lane east/west major thoroughfare in south Orlando, when we are passed by an aging clunker with a full queen size bed mattress and frame tied on top of the roof. They pass us going 45 mph.

The passenger is holding one side of the bed. The driver is holding the other. With his free hand, he is holding a cell phone into which he is engaged in an animated discussion.

I hope his knee was good with the steering wheel.

If the unexamined life is not worth living, surely an unexamined belief system, be it religious or political, is not worth holding.

Most things of value do not lend themselves to production in sound bytes.
