I don't know who reads this blog other than a few commentators, for which I am always grateful. Sometimes, and that sometime is now, the weight of the news just overwhelms the capacity for empathy. That usually means that one should take a break from ranting. I am not sure ranting isn't just self serving. However, we can't do much else other than donate money (to the U.N. and related organizations) and work for political candidates that might, in some far distant future, get us out of this tragic mess.
See you soon.
