Sense of Community
Been thinking lately about the line in the movie The English Patient where the "English patient" asks, "How come people get excited when they meet someone from their hometown when if they would've passed them on the street at home and wouldn't have given them the time of day?" --or something like that.
Think that's why I'm annoyed at all the big radio stations buying up the little ones. Is that why people are annoyed at all the Wal-Marts popping up and eating the "little guys" up. Isn't that why some people need to watch the local news?
Why do we innately long for familiarity?
