ANALYSIS: People accuse me of being too cynical.
I admit, I am something of the opposite of the great line from This is Spinal Tap, when the David St. Hubbins character says, in the random interview clips at the end of the movie, “I believe virtually everything I read, … and I think that is what makes me more of a selective human, than someone who doesn’t believe anything.”
I do have trouble believing things I hear and read from most mainstream sources at first blush.
