60 Minutes ran a piece tonight that claimed that the Bush camp filed suit with the Supreme Court to stay the Florida recount of the 2000 Presidential election citing their believe that to not do so would cause irreparable harm to the nation...
I am sorry for a piece so short, but that just says it all, I believe.
Though if there is sufficient interest, I hope that the commentary might itself comprise a worthwhile read.
For my part, the outcome of that election threw human existence into a surreal, nether reality (very much like the assassination of JFK), the only positive results of which might be that it possibly could provide a spark for a thorough reexamination of our fundamental principles, and to lead us to a place where the super-wealthy will willingly acquiesce to the idea that sharing can be good for everyone.
...but what do I know?
Happy Holidays, and here is to awareness!
