Some penetrating, provocative "nonsense"...

Well, Here's my comment:

What A LOAD Of BALDERDASH ! I could think of a more descriptive phrase, but it's "R" rated.

I was looking at the previous blog entries on Alex's
home page. So Much Cruelty and Negative Energy happening right now. I had missed seeing the "Penetrating, Provocative Nonsense" below the photo and title of the article, so when I got to This One, it SCREAMED at me ! And what this was SCREAMING, was: "This Is SOOO WRONG !" I couldn't believe what I was reading !???

I'm 58, soon to be 59. I and all my childhood friends have Somehow Managed to Survive Our Collective Imaginations ! While I was reading the article, I was also watching "Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire" on T.V. I LOVE those movies !

I'm fully convinved that if it wasn't for My Imagination, I'd be hopped up on drugs or dead by now.

Take away a Child's Imagination and there would Be No Art, Music or Laughter in the world ! It would also put a LOT of Fantasy Writers out on the streets, because they wouldn't be able to make a living.

I Sincerely Hope that the type of thinking in that article Never Catches On.
