the intellect, the eye, the feet

Reader comment on item: 3 French Soldiers, 3 Sitting Ducks

I applaud your effort to go out and see for yourself with your very own eyes on what you call a "tour of muslim majority areas".

What is closer to the truth: the eye or the intellect? I prefer very much the eye so long as it is looking at real events and people in the streets rather than looking at the screen of a tv or a computer. People seem to have an opinion on everything but overlook that all their so called opinions are nothing but digested opinions they were spoon-fed as second-hand information. And that information often exclusively originates from media. Certainly the internet is monoplized into one google, one wikipedia, one everything.

If and when people like you choose the eye it is the feet, the mouth, the ear that follow the eye naturally.

Thanks for your hard work.
