How many of you remember George Carlin? He was a great comedian and social commentator. I identified with him, and I miss him now.
George had a routine called “Stuff”. It’s one of his most popular bits, because most of us can identify with what he’s talking about. If you haven’t seen it, take 5 and watch it now:
A friend sent me a link today, to another video about Stuff. It’s called “The Story of Stuff”, by Annie Leonard. My first thought when I received the link, was to reply with the link to Carlin’s material above. I chuckled at that.
But I watched the video. It is impressive. It’s very simple; your kids could watch it. In fact, they SHOULD watch it. It’s straightforward, and cannot be written off as “opinion” or “propaganda”. We are familiar with the subject matter; we just never really assemble it in such a clear and concise way.
Please watch it now. I’m sure George would approve.

Thank you for taking the time. Hopefully you will enjoy the message and pass it on, as my friend did for me, and as I was compelled to do for you.
Have a good day today!
