Out of the Blue

I got out to see the Bourne Supremacy yesterday... it really was satisfying to use the free pass from the Bourne Identity DVD to get in, but I would have enjoyed the movie even if I had to pay. I grew up a big fan of James Bond, but that series has gone pretty haywire over the years... in fact when it struck me during the movie how much more realistic Bourne is than Bond, it then occurred to me that the Spider-Man movies are also more grounded in reality than the Bond series is at this point. Enjoying the movies means I should probably avoid reading Ludlum's original Bourne books, though, as my buddy MrCoffee had trouble enjoying the first movie because he's such a big fan of the books... I hate when that happens.

I'm a big believer in the golden rule and do my best to not screw others over. Why? Because I know it's the right thing to do -- I wouldn't want to be screwed over by someone else, so why should I do that to them? You reap what you sow and all that. And I do want a better world -- not only for my child and family, but for everyone. And while I don't expect to make a massive difference on that, I can at least do my part to not make it worse.

That pretty much sums it up for me also.

Here's a question to our Christian Bluesies out there: If you had happened to be born to Jewish, Muslim, or Buddhist parents, do you really think you would still believe in what you now believe is "The Truth"? I just can't help but think that if there were a one true God that he could have and would have been able to make it crystal clear to everyone what's really going on instead of watching us kill each other over different interpretations of an ancient book.
