Excellent answers, Olga. Thanks! – BGT
… and what would you expect form this mass culture? Democracy is rolling! Get out of the way! Somewhere where you can ask about Baudelaire’s view on this democrazy, if still in Paris.
Thanks, OMGM. I’ll review Baudelaire…! – BGT
Questions I have asked my husband in the last month:
We are in a museum, those young people are with their classmates, why are they all looking at their cell phones instead of talking to each other or looking at exhibits?
Why in the world is she leaving her house while carrying a designer bag and wearing pajamas?
Do we need to leave and go somewhere quieter so you can actually think?
Your questions made me smile. I am enjoying catching up on all of your blog posts.
Thanks, Kathleen. Yes, those are some of my questions, too! – BGT
