Flimsy Sanity: Thanks Dave

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Thanks Dave

In Jerusalem, a female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who
had been going to the Wailing Wall to pray, twice a day, everyday, for a
long, long time. So she went to check it out and there he was!

She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave,
she approached him for an interview. "I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN, Sir.
long have you been coming to the Wall and praying?"

"For about 60 years."

"60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?"

"I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and Muslims. I pray for all
the hatred to stop and I pray for all our children to grow up in safety and

"How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?"

"Like I'm talking to a fucking wall."

    60 years of praying and finally it dawns on him that there is no one in the wall or behind it or even gives a hoot. Bless tradition for making us dumb.

    Talking to a wall - exactly what he's doing!
