Blogging is limited by what is posted. If it’s not mentioned, it doesn’t exist, at least here on this blog. Though it may seem cliche to post about what everyone else will post about, it’s imperative that we acknowledge what must be acknowledged. We must express our various thoughtful and heartfelt meditations for the massive tragedy in Pakistan, which is, amazingly, still pale by comparison to the death toll of the Tsunami last year. And which I’m sure most of us hardly think of now, including myself. The disaster in New Orleans was a drop in the bucket by these standards, yet it took it’s toll on our culture and national spirit. The problem is how to keep these good intentions alive for more that a week or two. We live in a relatively stable political world, by historical standards. But the rage of the planet cannot be negotiated or quelled.
