A six year old today has the ability to search the collective knowledge of 6 billion people alive today and the 40 generations of mankind who have compiled history, events, culture and scientific data from all of recorded history. Even with this awesome tool at hand, the world is still too complex, formidable and mystifying to most of us. Despite the wide-reaching power at our fingertips, most of us merely utilize the Internet to communicate with othe's. Many of us keep abreast of the events of the day, the fads of tomorrow, or use this incredible device to simply amuse ourselves by playing with the endless diversions and permutations presented by this modern Aladdin?s Lamp. Tool or toy, devil or angel, magic lamp or societal menace, today?s computer and Internet access is an ever unfolding modern phenomenon. As mesmerizing and tantalizing as the power of the Internet may be, much of the information available is pure brain fodder. Every so often, however, among the limitless explosion of material and matter made available to us through E-mail, there are bits and pieces, kernels of simple lore and homespun wit and wisdom that help us get through the overload of daily life. The following is but a minuscule outpouring of this trivia and twist. Some of this e-mail minutia will make you laugh and some of it will make you cry. Some of it will make you think and some of it will make you wonder. For that purpose I commend it to your consideration, judgment, and conscience. In its own way this grassroots wit and wisdom says a lot about our world, our culture, our hopes and our dreams.
