I often steal the remark, "The most uncommon thing on the planet is common sense". The world seems consumed by a pity-party/hate-fest that doesn't show any sign of receding any time soon. This is alarming. But, it is not new.
Was anyone actually surprised when it was revealed that Keith Olberman was a Democrat?
I know one person who wouldn't have been and really wouldn't have given a fuck either:
The one thing that keeps some of us just above the fray, the pity-party/hate-fest, is the one thing we possess that others don't: the truth.
But that doesn't seem to help. The blind are blind are blind. But we knew this.
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."
