      ever wants to talk about. Believe me, I tried. And I gave up. The blank looks from my fellow board members--the "What in the world are you talking about? We're progressive. We work with domestic violence victims. We empower women. We don't discriminate. We embrace all cultures..."

      Blah, blah, blah.

      I find that most people don't want to see it. It's uncomfortable because it addresses something that is within their very core and that's a really difficult thing to do--that level of self examination.

      I can just about forgive the Brits for starting our revolutionary war and burning DC to the ground during the war of 1812 for giving us Led Zeppelin.
