Lions and Tigers & Bears, Oh My
You know, I think we're living in one of the most superstitious eras of any since the Dark Ages. Despite all our technology and scientific advancements we simply refuse to take a rational approach to any aspect of our lives. Instead, we want reality veiled. Reason dulled. Logic obfuscated. We want to believe in fairy tales rather than what's right in front of our faces. We don't want to think. We want answers pulled out of magician's hats.
And don't we just love our myths and cherish our hysterias? Don't we just believe the most ding dang gawd awfully stupid shit? My favorite? That the enemy is everywhere, lurking. Even in the eyes of an innocent dog.
