These things usually aren't about me. They are rants about what is going on in the world or what nonsense has affected my life that reflects on what is going on in the world.
However, the recent events in Colorado and some ancillary events have convinced me that we can't change the world one person at a time. We can't even change it a thousand people at a time. The world is a big place, and changing it has lost its purpose. We won't change it.
We won't keep people from talking on cell phones while they are driving. We won't keep people from buying assualt weapons. We won't keep people from throwing trash out of their car windows.
[Sidebar: I saw a Prius driver throw a cigarette out of his window. If a Prius driver doesn't get the "World-as-One" concept, what hope do we have?]
We won't keep people from parking in the fire lane at the Shop Rite. We won't keep people from singing-along at concerts. We won't keep people from doing "The Wave" at baseball games when our team has the bases loaded.
In short (if it isn't too late) we aren't going to change the world. So, what do we have left? Make ourselves happy and those around us.
So, Thor is getting a can of food and I'm listening to Kristin Hersh on the computer.
That's about it right now.
