i haven't done one of these in a long time. It's not that I haven't been keeping up with news, blogs, etc. It's just that there is so much for the last couple of months that it doesn't seem quite possible to keep up, and quite frankly, as I mentioned in a previous post [i know the feeling...] it's all so overwhelming and there's sometimes an infinite feeling of hopelessness.
So, instead of noting a few headlines, including a quote, and making a comment, I'm going to list some of the headlines that have been headlining in my head lately. Each one is a direct link to an article. If you want to read it, just click on the headline...
