In my Portland guesthouse I only have access to basic cable television. I'm considering petitioning the United Nations to request that only supplying basic cable be listed as a crime against humanity.
This morning I switched on to a re run of The Price Is Right. Buzz Aldrin was announcing the big prizes at the end whilst hawking his book. Oh Buzz, what happened to you? You used to be cool man.
It was a car crash moment, I could not look away. I still don't know what to say. I've always admired Mr. Aldrin,for his feats in space and inside his own head, there is no doubt he is a great man.
I feel our culture sacrifices dignity for money far too often. I expect it of the cretins who line up to be in game show audiences, but not from one of the great men of the last century.
