The ‘Meaning’ of Life

Is life really getting meaner? Are people actually blowing up at each other more often – figuratively as well as literally – and not just in Iraq? Are there more sneers, jeers, snides, asides, derides? More words turning the air bluer than ever before?

Is there more side-choosing and armpit-smelling than there used to be? More lines drawn in the sands and chips knocked off of shoulders? More condemnation and less commendation? Has our country become a condem-nation?

Is it just because there are more people, or that the meanness is getting more air-time? Is there just plainly more meanness?

Or is it just me, getting old?
