    for things to get this bad. People 20 years older than I am (Baby Boomers) lament that "it's been all downhill" in terms of social change in their lifetimes. In their postwar-to-present frame of reference, perhaps this has been the case. Me, I came of age--graduated high school, turned 18, graduated college--when Reagan was in office. I tell you, it was awful then! From my perspective, things have ever-so-slowly improved since, and we've seen a few previously-unthinkable social reforms (marriage equality, anyone?) take place just in the past few years.

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
