Social Media Civil War

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Edward Hopper Ground swell 1939   The US government has to come up with very very strong legislation for social media, and it has to do that very soon. Because if it doesn’t, it risks those same social media inciting a civil war (that’s no hyperbole, that is real) on American soil.

A Tale of Two Cummings

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail Edward Hopper The long leg 1935   Last weekend, I noticed that two of the main newsmakers were both named Cummings, one in the US, the other in the UK. At first glance they don’t look like family, but I’ll readily admit I can’t be sure of that. What I do know is that both are symbolic of what’s wrong with the political systems they figure in.
