The despised prophet

Today's Gospel reading (Mark 6: 1 - 6) might tempt us to give ourselves a chance to listen to what the 'other side' is saying.

Are we all brainwashed to think in a particular way? How much of our doing and thinking is influenced by those around us?

It must be almost impossible to go against the 'flow'.

In yesterday's 'Irish Times' Miriam Lord writes about the famous/infamous Fianna Fáil Galway Tent. She is commenting on Cowen's and McCreevy's remarks to the Oireachtas banking inquiry during the week.

Great last lines to the piece:

"Access. Influence. Word in the ear. Contacts forged. Networks strengthened. All very convivial. That's how it goes."

It fits.
