No, I find none of your statistics comforting. It is a new era, and I am afraid. I am very afraid.

In Paradise,

I am very much with you. I don't even think we realize what a "new era" we are in yet. And my biggest fear is that, either because of our heretofore (collective) short attention spans, or precipitous action by our government (or a combination/interaction of both), the 5,000 plus lives that are lost will have been in vain.

I just hope that we have the guts to really take action, and the wisdom to figure out what the right actions are.
