31. You are not alone but I understand it sometimes feels
that way. I am shocked that among my friends and acquaintances so few know anything at all about what's going on around them. Most don't even know who Alberto Gonzales is. I asked a close friend who has a master's degree in plant genetics and is a very intelligent person if he knew who Alberto Gonzales is. His answer, "President of Mexico?" At one time, before his two kids and high pressure job, he knew all about politics and the important issues in the world. Now his knowledge of current events goes no further than the current price of gas. I told him to expect a bunch of informative emails from me and encouraged him to start reading.

If this guy is so uninformed, I can't even begin to comprehend the ignorance level of so many other Americans. The media fails us miserably and I believe that to be the biggest reason revolution isn't on everyone's mind.
