I keep swearing I'm going to give it up. And yet, I keep doing it. Turning on NPR. Scanning the news headlines, then searching the international portion of the world wide web to find the rest of the story. Brooding over the sins committed by those who have power but no sense. Fighting a desperate desire to grab people passing by on the streets and make them see what's happening.
