Burning Questions on a legal pad…

Someone grabbed a legal notepad and started writing some questions. I’m not sure whose these belong to, but I wanted to capture them:

1. How is the war effort going in Iraq? Are we winning or losing?

2. Is there life on other planets?

3. Why do people live and then die?

4. How are movie special effects made?

5. Why is there racism?

6. Why did Thomas Jefferson own slaves?

7. Why was earth created?

8. Why are some people taller than others?

Here are some of the resources they jotted down:

Iraq-Dick Cheney speech

My War: Killing Time in Iraq

Google search: Iraq

Wikipedia

News

Life on other planets?

SETI

Drake’s Equation

A Brief History of Time

Burning Question #2,679: Who Owns Your Truth?

While researching some links and more information for a book that a student loaned me (thanks, A.N.!), So Far from the Bamboo Grove, by Yoko Kiwashima Watkins, I came across a site that made comments which indicated that what the author wrote wasn’t true. The author wrote the book many years after the events (about forty years later) and it’s her memoir of when she was a young Japanese girl living in Korea during WWII.

What do you think? Who owns your truth? If you remember it slightly wrong, does it matter?
