4. Do you ever wonder how we think some of these people are "friends" to begin with?

My very very very best friend from high school looked me up on facebook. Last I'd had contact with her was when the AIDS epidemic was rearing her lovely head and she said "God is punishing them for their sins". I just about fell out of my chair and hollered "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT????" and asked "why is God punishing all the other people in the world who have been afflicted with disease?" She thought and said "I never thought about that" She was parroting her RW husband. But she was very kind when my parents were dying although I didn't follow up with her. Then Facebook. She wrote something snarky about one of Obama's policies -- obviously not understanding it and again parroting hubby -- and I defrended her. She didn't do anything overt or specifically cruel, but we obviously have nothing in common any more and I wonder why we were so tight when we were younger. Probably the drugs.
