(For those who say I just don’t get it…get this)
In my latest post: “We Forget All Too Fast Just How Quickly It Can Hit The Fan” As always there are those that either doubt my premise (and want to express in excruciating detail) or simply ignore it all together. Nothing wrong with it, it’s part of the territory. However…
If you want to see just how fast collectively a meme, or anything else can take hold as well as fall away I point you to none other than this date..today..December 7th.
A great many of you will shrug. Probably just as many will think, “Oh yeah,,what happened, something big right?” and some will know and remember immediately. Today was the “day that will live in infamy” e.g., the day Pearl Harbor was attacked. December 7th, 1941.
As of this morning, I perused what many take as either “papers of record” or “websites of record” and what I found? Zip, zero, nada. Not even a mention on any front page. Absolutely unimaginable just a few years ago, but here we are.
You may find a reference that I overlooked. Yet, to be so glaringly missing, from so many, tells its own story. And should also alert one who pays attention just how fast things can – hit the proverbial fan when one least’s expect it.
