I was once reprimanded for being too political at work. Now that my boss is dead, I can say whatever the hell I want. The worlds' borders are dissolving. Technology is forcing everyone to evolve. Global issues are becoming local issues. We need leadership that is forward-thinking. We can look to the past for lessons, but not for goals. Leaders that preach about "us vs. them" or how great our past was, need to be dismissed as the philosophical dinosaurs that they are. Most decisions are between love and fear. Fear is generally the easier, knee-jerk reaction. Anyways, I love me some Wendy Patton. This gallery takes me back to a warm day in sunny Palm Springs with the quirky redhead. BTW, if Marilyn Monroe was alive today, do you think she would have more Instagram followers than Kim Kardashian?
