Word for the week

Ads were once simple presentations of the good qualities of various products. Toothpaste makes teeth white. Soap scrub away dirt. Washers clean clothes. This was the modern approach. Much advertising today is postmodern. Image replaces function. Cars and clothes make a statement. Cigarettes and beer portray an image. Advertisers tinker with our hearts. They appeal to lust and the lower nature. They foster discontent.

King's contribution to music was exceptional

Ben E. King is dead and I don't feel so good myself.
Okay, so I am borrowing that line from the title of a book by Lewis Grizzard after Elvis died.
King's rendition of "Stand by Me" should be in every rock and roll hall of fame, and, from my perspective, should be rated as more earth-shattering than the British invasion.

Some move to sanitize history to serve their purposes

The problem with history is that it starts out as news. It happens, is reported, and then finds its context in the world.
It is not a work of fiction, or a Disney movie where everything just sort of works itself out in the end.
However, we are seeing a movement I've not experienced in my lifetime that is all about re-writing American history. Groups are claiming things from our country's past need to be sanitized, as do our historical figures.
