    Open your eyes, folks...

    For all these folks who think the point of this article was to give fodder for bashing the President, you are missing the point. His statement was to say that too much information can, indeed, be crippling, and as one who has watched a nation of youth with access to more information than ever, making even more and more idiotic mistakes, you have to wonder whether there is some truth there. In fact, I'd argue that most of us are swimming in more 'information' than we can reliably digest and use; we are constantly pummeled by advertising, internet articles, text messages, emails, opposing opinion reviews that have questionable supporting data... I know many people who are simply choosing to checkout from all of this, and I fear that we do not yet know the impact to our society of such mass amount of data. Do we have to look back farther than recent terrorist attacks to see how we are struggling to process of this so-called 'information'?

    Re: oh brother

    Totally agree with your comment. All the supposed 'news reporting' agencies do these days is to try to make their mark off of things that aren't necessarily newsworthy to begin with...
