Well, in spite of the crappy news today, I have some reason to be hopeful.
First, Digby sums up today's proceedings and reminds us why we shouldn't give up.
Also, I went to check my blog today, and found that I've acheived some additional linking. (Thanks, Moonbootica! Anyone that quotes Camus in their blog is OK by me - and an Atriot too!) That means a few are at least stopping by. Since there are a few more visitors, I'll have to try to make it more interesting by writing more often, and trying to find some interesting topics.
