A rallying cry for the unlike-minded
Every day we wake up…
To the sound of  music we like
We have breakfast with eggs from “farmers who share our values” “ Look at me!  I share your values!”
Read our   personalized press
and  discover  and  share  and  comment  the news with our circle of  friends-and-followers
we’re inspired to shop for what friends and like-minded people are shopping for
after work we can  meet people who share  our interests and values
and then take them for dinner in a place  we know they’ll love
or we can stay home  and watch a movie we’ll like
followed by  the news we trust
