While–should I get back to any sort of substantive posting before November 2, which is unclear at this point–I may “link to things other people have to say”:http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/2004/10/an_indecent_dis.html, or discuss the way my involvement in all this has changed me, I don’t think I can continue to talk about my feelings, because it’s obvious that when I do so I am unable to rise above fairly corrosive incivility.
So I’m going to stop. I’m unlikely to convince anyone, no matter how well I document the compulsive mendacity, or the failed programs or the disastrous policies, if I can’t even begin to make the case at anything less than a primal scream.
More yoga is probably the answer. Or more gin and tequila. It’s probably situation-dependent.
