From the Mind of a Master

The following quote by one of my literary heroes, Raymond Chandler, can be applied today to most our entire media.  It is a festering pustule of innuendo, speculation, half-truth and ugly rumors.  It has taken logic to an all new low; makes no pretense of being capable of inductive or deductive reasoning; panders to the lowest common denominator; speaks on a level appropriate only to a poorly educated eight-year-old and has made a mockery out of morality, a jest out of justice and a trick bag out of truth.  So read the words of the master Hardboiled Detective writer and remember - beware of the Fourth Estate.

"It is pretty obvious that the debasement of the human mind caused by a constant flow of fraudulent advertising is no trivial thing. There is more than one way to conquer a country."
