Cue up the Rod Searling lead-in music . . . de de da da de de da de de da.
“This is the fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area we call the Twilight Zone.”
I’m here in the Twilight Zone. I know I’m here, I must be. I have this eerie feeling that I’ve gone back in time, back to a place I’ve been before. A place I never wanted to go back to.
I’M BACK AT THE PANAMA CITY NEWS HERALD FORUMS!!!!!
A place where a post is met with derision and hateful remarks, a place where chain emails are accepted as fact or justified as a “point”, and offensive humor has become acceptable to most. A place where gang intimidation rather than citing is used to prove a point, a place where name-calling and offensive nicknames are commonplace. A place where several claim to be Christians, yet the F bomb and other profanity is dropped with impunity.
Is this what we’re becoming? Is this what The Rio Norte LIne wants to be and have other readers see? Is this what we’re degenerating into?
I want to come back, back to the present, where courtesy, respect for differing opinions, and facts are considered. I, for one, don’t want TRNL to become the NH Forums.
