    I have to disagree somewhat. Yes, its moved from the ivory towers, but
    it always was widely available to the general public on the street. Now
    it seems that fewer people are asking philosophical questions. More
    specifically, it may just be my perspective since I'm referring to folks
    directly around me. Sure, I can find people on the Internet, but
    face-to-face, it gets harder to find.

    :-) (And understanding doesn't mean unable to learn more.)
