Re: [education][architecture] GT.M Operations & Adminstration Course January 14-16, 2015...

it will be held in Indianapolis?? I'm afraid I cannot take the time off
to fly to the seminar, at this time.

Cheers,

"Because then your're watching television,
you're watching the news,
you're being pumped full of fear.
There's floods, there's AIDS, there's murder.

Cut to commercial, buy the Acura.
Buy the Colgate. If you have bad breath,
they're not gonna talk to you. If you got
pimples, the girl's not gonna f*&k you.
And it's just a... it's a campaign of fear
and consumption.

That's what I think it's all based on.
The whole idea that,
'Keep everyone afraid and they'll consume.' "
