Oh boy, Larry King is using Twitter now, it’s another celebrity nail into human thought. I’m always amazed when people say “I had to do it,” as if there was an actual physical force making them do something, or they would die if they didn’t follow a fashion. There is a choice, you can say: “I’m not going to do it.” I’d have more respect if people chose to lead by example, instead of giggling about how they “had” to join in the new trend.
I’m going to use the Black and White Photography Postcards today.

This is a publicity shot from Hal Roach studios designed to assure the public that child actors did attend school. The old publicity machine at work. Does this necessarily mean you are learning something or are you simply posing, playing along with what is scripted for you? Kind of like “We use Twitter and are on the cutting edge of technology.”
Someone is looking over your shoulder and will hold you accountable for not paying attention.
