Ok, ok. I chose a few controversial issues and gave a few controversial answers... heehee. But what would it feel like to only have one thing to say? To live in a horrible, Soviet-esque world where there is no opinion available other than the mass-marketed one? Writers like Upton Sinclair (check out for a great clip of an essay he wrote) and Dosteovsky (I know, I probably spelled it wrong) and so many others fought to say what was true. That's inspiring.

So true! We're lucky to live in a place where we can post nearly anything we want to our blogs -- having a voice, and an audience, for our truth is so important. One of the best things about the internet is that it allows many ideas to reach many people -- now there's no "waiting to get published" if you have something to say!
