I wrote about bits of change last time and that topic relates to moderation, which is so much on my mind today. I ate too much bread a month ago and felt like a bloated pig, so I eat the amount in two average rolls now at most. I ate too much ice cream for my digestive system to process hundreds of times in the past, so now I eat about 4 ounces max.It hurts my sense of decency to watch people gorge themselves at buffets, where I eat little bits of lots of foods.
I deplore extreme conservatism and extreme knee-jerk liberalism (sorry to say that to many of my good friends). Moderation, whether in diet, alcohol, medication, exercise,insurance programs, budget cuts, spending, taxes, foreign affairs, travel, watching TV, playing videogames, work and even sex sounds so boring. I wish moderation would become popular. However, I don't see how it would become the subject of many talk shows, movies or books. I better even not write too long a blog about it. Let me just say that moderation or "the Golden Rule" rules in my book.
