You Can't Please Everybody

In my 44 years I've learned that you can't please everybody. There is no 100% and unanimous is a myth.

No matter how good or bad something or someone is some will like and some will not.

Recent examples.

Barack Obama
Kanye West
Chicago's Olympic bid for the 2016 games

Our president is a world wide popular icon. Of course, he has those who think he should be anywhere but the White House.

Kanye West loves himself more than any one man could or should. He has been vilified for stealing Taylor Swift's spot light at an awards show. Yet, there are many in his corner more than willing to hold his mirror for him.

Chicago's Olympic bid for 2016. I've never heard anybody criticize the actual Olympic games. There is huge support for Chicago to get the 2016 games. Anybody that has ever visited Chicago knows this city deserves to be the center of attention. Not to my surprise, there are people who don't want the Olympics coming here. They have concerns that taxpayers will be stuck with the bill.

I guess this world would be a dull place if everybody agreed all the time. I know it would make writing this blog more challenging.

Here's to diversity. Can we all agree that that is a good thing?

Probably not.
