When Things Are Rotten

By Mahons On March 17th, 2011

Japan’s horror and turmoil is numbing. It is unreal. Libya’s madman retaking his country is depressing. The economy is scary. Haii has no chance of recovery. The Saudis have entered Bahrain. Iraq and Afghanistan aren’t stable. And Reality Television shows no decline. What does one do in these hard times? Laugh? Cry? Pray? Drink? Curse? I am accepting any ideas.

    Find reassurance in humanity in the stoicism and discipline of the Japanese and in the courage and determination of the Libyans and Bahrainis.

  2. Not bad ideas.

  3. “Laugh? Cry? Pray? Drink? Curse?”
