    This is the time of year when we get multiple showing's of the old movie "It's a wonderful life" which is a celebration of family and community victory over evil.

    However, if updated for the changes in our society, I'm not sure how the same plot would play out...for many of the reasons above.   But, I have hope in that direction and...a bit opposed to Grover's comment...the digital age has some good points.  Think how the "Flush Rush" campaign got going and is the boycott of Darden Restaurants and Papa John seems to be working.  

    Still, we're terribly fractured, and until we get rid of places like Fox News and Rush and Hannity and the NRA and actually have fact-based, for the benefit of WE THE PEOPLE, media and goverment, we're going to have pockets of idiocy fighting pockets of compassion and community.    

    Ah well...this is complex...but the net is, to me, if we are good neighbors (physically and digitally) and our neighbors are good too, we can succeed.  But there will always be a Mr. Potter...
