Nobody likes a Snitch

Gotta love this cartoon - one person's whistleblower is another's snitch. Our country's fascination with Edward Snowden and whether he is a whistle-blower, spy or traitor reminds me of the adage: "Don't shoot the messenger". Interesting how the news these days seems to be all about the Messenger and not the Message. Perhaps it is simply our fascination with celebrity and our inability to grasp the complexity of the message trying to be told? I think that Sophocles said it best when he said: "None love the messenger who brings bad news."
