"Do you believe in miracles?" sportscaster Al Michaels famously asked his TV audience in the final seconds of the 1980 Winter Olympics' gold medal ice hockey game that made immortals of the victorious Cinderella team of the U.S.A.
My question these days is, "Do you believe in absolutes?" I believe in gray matter, as it pertains to our intellect, and to most matters of life, defined by shades of gray (a lot more than merely 50) open to myriad interpretations. If absolutes ruled the world, we arguably wouldn't need judges or juries, all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Those who are offended or enraged by a particular journalist or story in the media reflexively will lash out, "The media is biased." It certainly is. It's biased because every human being brings to the story his or her own set of biases that determine how we react to the story and to the messenger.
