There's so much wrong with the world, and so little of me right now to throw at any of it. The chasm between the America of my childhood, the America I belong in (for all that it probably never existed except in my mind) and the one on the news today is so vast I can't really face it. I can't say gay marriage is the most important issue out there. I should be talking about global warming, or health care, or corporatism, or the anti-animal movement. Or I should be ignoring politics and trying to get a job. Maybe posting this shouldn't be at the top of my list, but it is the right thing to do, so here it is.
