    I just got 'lucky' with my in-laws.  They were fine for the first 20-25 yrs - then they started listening to AM radio & Fox, a child went into the service and just ate up all the gung-ho RW military propaganda leading up to Iraq and a respected elder died - and all hell broke loose.  

    YMMV

    •  AM Radio and Fox really do warp minds (2+ / 0-)

      I know my dad's has been warped pretty bad by it. He was a truck driver for nearly two decades, and about all he listened to during that time was AM radio. Thank goodness my mom finds Limbaugh revolting and manages to keep my dad from going too far when he talks about politics.

      On the other hand, my dad doesn't even vote. None on his side of the family actually votes, and I think it's because my paternal grandparents were unable to vote for years because they couldn't afford the poll tax back then to vote.

      Time is of no account with great thoughts, which are as fresh to-day as when they first passed through their authors' minds ages ago. - Samuel Smiles
