We Are a Silly, Misguided People

My house was crowded and people were more keen to talk than listen to what was coming from the TV so I missed a lot of the Superbowl commercials that America tunes in for. I remember reading the words on the screen, that it was audio from a sermon by Martin Luther King Jr., and saying “well that is good.” But I didn’t get the full sense of what was said other than they were selling trucks.

It’s America, who doesn’t want to sell a truck? Well, funny thing or massively idiotic thing is, it wasn’t the full sermon in which Dr. King tears down the American dream proffered by marketers and our own little greedy hearts. Thankfully someone has remedied the situation with the pertinent portion of his sermon.

Hmm. Now that is better…
