"Friends" 2012

Thought for today (got to get this off my back)...Beware of those who pose as "friends." In today's world the word "friend" does not mean what it did when I was young. Back then a friend was someone you could depend on, who would never do you wrong; who you could reach out to; who would borrow a dime and give you back a dollar. Today a "friend" is someone who reaches into your pocket and takes a dollar; who sees you as someone they can exploit for their own ends; to whom loyalty and kindness means nothing. This seems to be the way of the world these days. I feel better now...sort of.  Perhaps we need to come up with a new word.  If you think this is about you then it probably is.  The innocent need not apply.
