1. This is QUITE eloquent, TygrBright!

Can't help myself. I like it. Sometimes I wonder, seriously, if we're not on the verge of this now.

Ralph Nader, for whom I lost all respect back during Selection 2000, still said something back then that really rang true. Sometimes things have to get really too horrible for people to be forced out of their apathy and laziness actually to get up and do something about it. Riot, protest, grab the pitchforks and torches, drag 'em out kicking and screaming into the town square, whatever. I wonder if we are close to reaching that breaking point. I think about that a lot. How much will the people be willing to stomach - before it just gets a little bit too horrendously bad? What will it take - finally - to move us off our collective butts? When will that critical mass happen? When will enough finally and really and truly be ENOUGH?
