I think the whole aspect of social networking is vulgar and repulsive in a lot of ways. But I also see why it's appealing - I've had that little high you get from posting stuff online. But then you think, 'Did I need to say that?' I've explored that enough to know to stay kind of quiet these days.

America's critics can be heard everywhere. It is too much in love with money - worshipping the god of the marketplace, the golden calf.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
