"Sol's kind of faith", says one, "is a gift. It's like an ear for music or the talent to draw. He believes, and you can use logic on him all "And if all your faith is wrong, Sol..." begins another, to which Sol interjects, "Then I'll still have a better life than all of those that doubt... If necessary, I will always choose God over truth." As the week's events have reminded us once again - and how many more vats of blood do we need to wring from this tired mop? - blind faith can make this planet a criminally stupid place to live. The zinger is that with libraries of knowledge at our fingertips, the evolution in communication technologies is proving just as efficient at reinforcing viral ignorance and bigotry. Or maybe it's just hastening the inevitable. [More at site... thanks to Terry W. Colvin for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
