  •  Well, hell. We're here. We're stuck with each (3+ / 0-)

    other. We had damned well make something better of this place than what is going on at present.

    Waking up is the first step for progress, and there is a global re-awakening the planet is undergoing. The havoc the few are wreaking on the many has become almost transparent. I think this is a good thing that will have positive long term benefits.

    But getting from here to there is going to continue being a tough slough. I can't always maintain a positive view of the future and our progress towards that future. But when I make the calls and write the letters and see increased receptivity on the part of my legislators, it keeps that tiny spark of hope alive.

    Thanks for the window on your perspective today, OPOL. I was there earlier this week and am in recovery mode. Well executed, as always.
