Today my ladies book club met. We had just finished Gardens of Water by Alan Drew which was a wonderful book. A real window to why the Kurds in Turkey hate Americans. It was also a window to the diversity within our book club. Of course I am the "Flaming Liberal" of the group, one member is what I would call the "Rigid Conservative" of the group. It reminds me of a conversation with my Mother-in Law where she laughingly referred to the "young radicals" who called her the "old fogies." It is amazing both sides can feel so absolutely certain that there is no other way to view things. Even the very arguments seem to one side ludicrous and yet make sense to the other. I guess that is what makes the world turn.
