OK… to some, maybe I got a bit too much into my own head, this morning.
Just to say that yer ol’ Uncle Paul’s got some health concerns, being checked out early this afternoon… No panic, no freakout, but some concerns.
Nevertheless, I’d like to share a conversation with a person of goodwill on <mumble mumble> blog…
Happens to be that I’ve subscribed to a boat-load of blogs over the decades… Have formed some lovely friendships with those I’ve known for 15+ years, and are dear friends, but unlikely to meet face-to-face this side of the Rainbow Bridge…. The Magic of the Brave New World of on-line living.
Nevertheless… enough wool-gathering… This was regarding Reuters News Service counseling their reporters to treat the Trump regime as they would any other authoritarian regime.
I refer you to Prof. Bob Altemeyer, Univ. of Manitoba’s massive work, “The Authoritarians.”
I’d highly recommend his (free!) work to anyone who’s wondering what the hell has been going on…
Prof. Bob is neither specifically “liberal,” “conservative” or “very conservative.” He’s a scholar.
Heady stuff, but considering that Kellyanne spouted off that they’d boycott CNN because they wouldn’t toe the line.:
