There are a finite number of self-appointed, supposedly superior people who tend to lump the balance of humanity into a category known as “laymen,” “lay woman”, “lay person” or “lay people.”
Every day, everywhere, people seek each other out to talk about their ailments, their politics, their religion, the national debt, sports, sex and, an all time favorite, other people, which is the fodder for the really juicy gossip. Each of us has an opinion. Each is convinced that his or her answer is the Answer.
We frequently tell ourselves that the rest of the world wallows around in a manure pile, then knowingly hang and shake our heads before going about our daily businesses in a reverie of imaginatively constructed self-righteousness. There seem to be more answers than problems bobbing about on the sea of humanity. Layman’s License poses a few more answers as well as a few more questions. This book is a little bit about a lot!
