Mostly because I am so tired of the onslaught of bad news in the 'big picture'. There appears to be no end to the lengths radicals will go to force their narrow view point on the rest of the population. In the US or abroad. And the deep pockets of the business interests that keep our elected officials from truly representing We the People [all the people] seem to have no bottom: financially or morally.
So I'm going to change tack, and just comment on the little things I see here, at the 'worker ant' level.
Because that's more than crazy enough for me.
These are mostly the things that make me despair of the human race; but sometimes there are shining lights in the darkness. I keep a look out for those.
