Some posts deserve a “DISLIKE” button… Facebook, “Like” is being used as simply an acknowledgment. It is socially acceptable to “Like” a story about horrific things – it just seems stupid; nobody actually LIKES the story being a fact; they like the fact it is being reported, perhaps, but I think there could be some future confusion – children who use facebook could have their minds twisted by being introduced to this concept of “Like”-ing very horrible things. It could fundamentally change the connotation and definition of the very word, “like” – subconsciously, at first – there are many people coming from different backgrounds and I have spoken to people who find it bizarre. Who knows what effect this has on children and the next generation?
Re: Lincoln Memorial Vandalism: Hope they not only catch those who played a part in this, but find out and publish the demographics of the vandal(s), investigate what thought process (if any) led to this… my first question is, was this kids, or does the green color have some significance, was it an act of protest, someone who wants to denounce their U.S. Citizenship (if applicable)… WHAT MOTIVE? WHY? And just tossing green paint around???? You would expect graffiti like a message.. is the green paint a calling card in itself? Or was green the only color in the paint store? Is this part of the ‘green movement’?Brendon Tristal
