My last post was in part about the Pitino scandal which generated the comment from fellow blogger Bill Stankus “Just what is going on in the land of Boone?” That left me thinking about the moral depths we have dropped to in America.
Daniel Boone or most any man who lived in that era would be disgusted and shocked at what passes for decency and respect today. We are now the land which values immediate gratification and the quick buck over most everything else.
It brought to mind the movie “The Village”, where a group of people who had violence touch their lives, started a “wildlife preserve” in which they start a village, hidden from the outside world. The first generations of the founders know nothing of the modern outside world from which they are insulated.
If there where such a village I’d be tempted to sign up.
