What I read…

I read a lot of articles each day. I really should share what I have read. So here’s what I read today (with simple notes):

Seth Godin. Of course.
Liked it.

Didn’t like it… though it was good. For some reason (perhaps I envy his lifestyle and success?) I think of Chris as a TV evangelist: preaching empty messages to serve himself.

Hmm. Romney looks heartless and unethical. On Jan 5th, I wrote this:

What would it take to pull off a major theft?

The vast majority of people never consider the question. At least not seriously. That is why the vast majority of people hold jobs: they do not steal (significantly) from where they work; they do not plan elaborate strategies to clean out they company they work for.

But some people do think about how to pull off a heist. And not just in action movies.

As we have seen in action films, the amount of planning and money it takes to pull of a major heist is beyond the majority of people. But for those who do consider it, you can pull off grand theft, free and clear, in two arenas: the financial industry and religion.

Looks like I was right.

  1. Wow… so true about the heist arena; most people forget that it was the organized “church” that sought Jesus’ death….

    About the “human Barbie”; to look at the picture of the mother and daughter is to see how much more attractive, pretty, unspoiled, lovely, the daughter looks; and the mother could be jealous and wants to spoil her looks, too? Just a thought.

    The blog by Christ G? Perhaps the reason you don’t like him is because he is all about, (only about) himself; and as a teacher, you are all about nurturing and helping others grow; and that is the better part.

    Thank you for sharing. I watched and read things I didn’t know were out there… and learned in the process.
