Seems like everybody is blaming the media for the world’s problems. Sadly, the electronic media makes up a substantial part of where most people get information, including news.

There remains places where folks read their weekly paper word for word. In a town like Philip, South Dakota, people really care about each other, how they are, and what they are doing. It’s a place of front porch talkrs who discuss events from barking dogs to drunks. They pray together in church and cry together at funerals.
