Drug Raid on Pottstown Street Yields Arrest
Have you ever noticed that if you learn a new word, suddenly you begin to see that word everywhere? Or, an actor that you haven’t thought about in ages will show up on the news, in a movie you watch on TV, and come up in a discussion with a friend?

All of these “coincidences” are examples of the adage that we tend to find what we are looking for. When we look for dust we find it, whereas it remained somewhat invisible before we started looking.
