Full of Wonder

I wonder if 7 billion people in the world is the tipping point.

I wonder if ripping up a poster of Rosa Parks is any indication of just how serious the racism problem remains in this country.

I wonder why economists believe the recession is over, but no one else does.

I wonder if my grandmother will die because the government will pull the plug., I don't. I'm not (that much of) an idiot.

I wonder if there is any curry better than that available at Pad Thai.

I wonder why so many people care about the status of Paula Abdul.

I wonder if people on death row who also use Facebook publicly update their status messages counting down the days until they die.

I wonder why Glenn Beck still has a job.

I wonder if I will ever have my hair cut again.

I wonder if the phrase "abnormally cool" in central Oklahoma during the summer is a misnomer.

I wonder at the infinite beauty of the Rocky Mountains.

I wonder if I will ever stop this blog entry.
