Dear Editor:

Isn’t it amazing that George Carlin, comedian of the 1970s and 80s could write something so very eloquent and so very appropriate.

A message by George Carlin: &8220;The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense; more knowledge but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems; more medicine but less wellness.
