The latest post on Stuff Black People Don't Like, referring to the flash mob violence in the US, opines that "I've got more than a feeling that a lot of good people are joining the ranks of Those Who Can See this weekend. "
Well, I sure hope so, but an incident today makes me wonder. Spoke with a senior American pharmachem engineer, based in Ireland for the last four years. He's being moved to Denver by his company - much to his regret.
"Watch out for the flash mobs in down-town Denver" I cautioned. He was amazed. "What are flash mobs?" I kid you not. He had heard nothing about all the stuff that's going down in his homeland.
He assured me that he watches CNN and Fox News.
Maybe that explains it.
