This is a great meditation on this "phenomena."

But you have to forgive "tweet culture," when it's in its infancy. The rules of appropriate decorum for our new ability to take pictures anywhere/anytime and then transmit them both instantaneously and globally have been clearly defined and distributed.

Culturally, we're making terrible mistakes with this newfound power- like a simian with a gun, but I'll keep a candle burning in the window that people will figure out how boneheaded this type of behavior is.

The internets love to correct one another.
