I have been thinking, which I have been told is a dangerous thing. Between cliché’s, euphemisms, and the politics of political correctness, I have wondered how anyone can have a safe conversation anymore. Being politically correct I know is the politically correct thing to do, but really, have we become so over sensitive that it takes a government think tank and a master’s degree from Harvard and a study of the migratory patterns of the Blue Finch to determine whether or not it’s safe to say something?
I am not advocating that we all become crass, obnoxious, insensitive trash talkers. But certainly there is a balance somewhere out there? Do you think I’m going overboard? How about this, I will jot a few words down and then, being honest, you comment me on this post the first thing or two that pops into your mind. One week from now I will post a summary of those comments…..Deal?
(By the way I will not disclose any identifiers to who said what in that summary.)
