Yeah, yeah I know we are living under the specter of war and terror. But we have always lived under the specter of war and terror.
Is it really all that bad?
Watch enough Reality TV and you’ll see it. Weeping whining crying sighing chest banging tantrums about problems that aren’t problems. People bitching about imagined rights they feel have been infringed upon, poor long suffering souls wailing that the world is not looking after their needs. This behavior is not confined to the dregs of Fox prime time, its ll around us, TV just treats it to a giant audience. No one is happy and somehow in this age of enormous excess, nothing is enough.
