The complexities of the human mind never cease to amaze me. On almost a daily basis a story I hear or something I see another human being do, makes me wonder "What were they thinking?"
Maybe it's that our minds are so complex that the same information just comes out with a variety of different responses and answers.
For example, I'm leaving the hospital campus today and drive north. The medical school is in a not-so-great neighborhood, rife with urban problems of crime and drugs. It's a poor, predominately black neighborhood.
As I was driving down one of the worst streets that always prompts me to lock my doors, I spotted a small bright yellow sports car. Because Oklahoma does not require two license plates, most people choose some sort of novelty plate for the front of their car. This car, a BMW with darkly tinted windows, being driven by a gray-haired white male, whom I suspect was a physician or some other professional associated with the medical center, sported a confederate flag. Yes. A confederate flag.
What was he thinking?
