It is sad that the manipulation of the mind has become so easy. Maybe it's because the manipulators have fewer filters--things like values--to make it though.

My brain conjures up a line from Stephen Bruton and Gary Nicholson's song Fallin’ and Flyin'…“Funny how fallin’ feels like flyin’, for a little while.”


I remember Lindsay Lohan “coming of age” in an intensely poor fashion...which hasn’t appeared to turn out that well for her. Likewise the emancipation of Britney Spears did not appear to be a sustainably “winning” formula.


Sometimes the initial laughter ends in sorrow, and in that regard I offer as a caution to any young person interested in “transcending” early fame to the confused and easy pathway of crass theater and poor choices – John Mayer’s words from the song Gravity: “Oh twice as much ain't twice as good / And can't sustain like one half could / It's wanting more / That's gonna send me to my knees”…


I'm just saying, this doesn’t look like a promising direction.

Jeff Allen

so... pay strict attention to the folks behind the curtain? where's Toto when you need him?

I spit out part of the Miley worm on Monday afternoon by un-following The Huffington Post, which was hitting send about every two minutes with another Miley tweet. The final straw for me was an HP tweet of an HP story about how much Miley tweeting was going on. We're all suckers until we decide we don't want to be. Good column.
