This may not of course be true in the age of reality television, but in the older days of movies, ballet, opera etc.. You saw more good than bad. As for I haven't seen much. I am from Alaska. Have traveled to almost every state. Canada, Mexico. Have worked in the circus as a juggler and entertainer (jugglers get heckled too.) Read extensively. Have been poor. Have been rich. Have been up. Have been down. Have seen ALOT.
