Thereís an article in todayís San Francisco Chronicle predicting that the sun and earth and all the other planets will be hurled into deep space until we collide with a neighboring galaxy. Not soon - but soon enough to make me wonder why people think this is important.
It also leads me to wonder what else people believe is important, so, I made a list of what I believe some well known Americans consider most important. The object: to achieve some clarity through comparison of what I confess are entirely my perceptions.
For Dennis Prager the most important issue is Goodness.
For Rush Limbaugh itís articulating his political opponentís hypocrisy.
For Randi Rhodes itís spewing vile about Conservatives to anyone who will listen.
For Michael Moore itís political hatred.
For Jimmy Carter — I donít know, but he proves that being President doesnít make you any wiser or better than anyone else.
For John Kerry itís political power.
George Soros is preoccupied with anti-capitalism.
For Nancy Pelosi itís her party above all else.
For John Edwards, itís redistributing American wealth from those who have it to those who want it.
For Al Gore itís the temperature.
Barak Obama Ė no idea what he cares about.
For Tom Cruise itís Scientology.
For Oprah Winphrey itís earning respect.
For Howard Stern itís exploiting the forbidden.
For Paris Hilton itís being a celebrity.
For President Bush itís doing right as God gives him ability to understand.
