Beach Walk 558 – What comes first, doesn’t matter

I read an interesting article in the NY Times a while back about the leader of the NAACP stepping down.

His vision of building economic equality as a way to lead people to social equality was not well-supported. It got me thinking, that in many cases it doesn’t matter which comes first. Try one, and if it doesn’t work, try the other.

Hawaiian Word:
Mua: first

Be in Touch!


  1. good food for thought Rox..most of the time we hear or read thoughts and/or opinions of influential and knowledgeable people but it should only assist in your opinion on the subject not cement it as a definite….movie critics are a good example……form your own decision……or try a different one…Hau’oli Makahiki

  2. Hi Rox

    I have watched quite a few of your videos recently. I was downloading some new music into I-Tunes and this one song kept bringing me back to your videos. The artist is named Moby and the song is called Everloving. Here is the You Tube address of the video.

    If the link doesen’t work, go to You Tube and type “Moby, Everloving”, it will be the top video.

    Merry Xmas and have a rewarding 2008.


  3. Yeah – Arguing about “which comes first” is maybe another aspect of the “This is right, so that must be wrong” culture that we’re surrounded with – polarised arguments. I guess it suits both politicians/lobbyists because advocating one point of view in opposition to another is a way to build power and support and appear decisive – while the media producers can create conflict and ‘entertainment’. Even handed discussions where everyone’s in basic agreement and arguing finer points don’t make for powerful personalities or high ratings, I guess.
    Wonder how long that’ll be the case.

    Anyway, happy birthday!

    And happy New Year :)

    Here’s to a great 2008


  4. @Bob from Canada and @Rupert – it’s tricky as the fact that some people ARE so opinionated really helps bring forward the energetic aspects of a topic. I am blessed/cursed with seeing both sides, which sometimes makes it hard to form an opinion. But the bottom line as you stated Rupert, when it comes time to actually DO something about a situation, it’s really helpful to be able to stay detached and listen.

    @Paul – welcome and thanks for leaving a comment. I love Moby and his music. I saw him in person at a small outdoor amphitheater in Santa Fe an it rocked. Shane just mentioned he may have some songs available for public use; I will check that out!

    Love you all, thank you for taking your precious time to comment.
