Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
True, age is relative. This morning my husband was watching Goonies and asking me how old Josh Brolin is. I knew he is around my age as Diane Lane, his wife, and I are the same age. And Martha Plimpton who is in the movie plays a grandmother, I believe, on that Raising Hope show.

Another birthday that hit me today was a kid I used babysit when I was a nannie many, many moons ago (1991 - 1995), well that "kid" just celebrated his 25th birthday today...and it hit me like a ton of bricks because he was just 3 years old when I first started babysitting him and still in diapers...lol! I just don't know where the time has gone. EEK!
