Two necessary updates. One, via Reddit: “It’s fake—It’s wise—It’s best read in Freeman’s voice, regardless.” Also via Reddit: “There are several people saying saying that it hasn’t been proven Morgan said this but I still COMPLETELY agree with the message either way… And come on, all things just sound better in Morgan Freeman’s voice. Proof : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7Gx1FYuaCo&t=0m50s ” End Reddit excerpt. See my comment below the post re the gun control point.
And, two: not “all news” is guilty of this hype, equally. The NY Times, for example, focused on the victims of 9/11, say–doing an article on every single one of the approx 3000 human beings who died that day. And, currently, they have a list of the victims on their front page, not a photo of the murderer. ~ Waylon Lewis, ed.
