Green Chaser

One of my famous observations....I was riding on metro this afternoon and I was pooped. I nodded for a short spell. Thankfully I was unable to get into a deep sleep because I am a light sleeper, but for a quick second, I was extremely tired. I was awaken by one of my friends calling me on my cell. As I said, I'll call you when I get off the train, I paned the view of my fellow train riders. Out of about 30 people on the car with me, 75% of them were either nodding or they were just plain asleep.

Here is the deep thought...WAIT...We were all coming home from work! There were people of all walks of life on the train with me. I was in the company of Nurses, soldiers, construction workers, office workers, senior citizens and students. The only section of folks that I mentioned that were all wake were the two senior citizens that were just leaving home to go and play bingo. Out of all of the previously named folks, a good percentage of people, like me, were in the sleepy trance. What does that say about the society? We are all so focused on chasing the green that folds, we are not getting enough rest. The invention of the television, video games, the large homes we can't afford etc. are all to blame for the lack of sleep and rest in America. This is only my humble opinion. I know that I was up late, watch a made for TV movie staring every one's favorite former DIVA Delta Burke. The movie was horrible but I could not stop watch, now that is mind control!

So I say all that to say, please pray that the TV Producers add a subliminal message that can actually help us, for the better, not to go to the dark side. I wish I could say that I am going to protest TV, but, I am also under control.......Please help us...
