so many columnists and bloggers have written informed, thoughtful and thought-provoking pieces about the tragedy on the gulf coast. i simply don’t feel qualified to add commentary to the many ways this heartbreak has further exposed how inept we are at taking are of our own people. as the water is pumped out of the basin, the horrors will only grow more obvious.

for this and other reasons, i’ve felt disinclined to post much lately. everything else seems so mundane in comparison. fortunately, the optimistic spirits (thanks, shanna) of new orleans are starting to see “rays of light”. so, while we cannot forget to do anything we can to help, tomorrow is, yet again, a new day.

I desparately wanted to watch some mindless TV yesterday, but only found talking heads. I understand the inundation of it all, but we have missed you out here.
