Here’s a Thought

Do you ever remember bad things that happen to you from ages ago?   Sometimes you’ll be going along enjoying your day and all of a sudden something will remind you of a bad memory.   It’s usually something you thought you had forgotten, or wish you had forgotten.   A traumatic experience or a major embarrassment.   Maybe it’s the time when you acted inappropriately or caused someone you love pain.   Whatever it is, you want to forget it but you can’t.   That’s when it would be nice if human memory was like computer memory.   Computer memory is temporary.   It only remembers things for as long as the computer is turned on.   As soon as you turn it off it forgets.

As I write this it comes to mind that the American electorate has a memory a lot like computer memory.   Think about it.
