It is amazing to me how warm and cozy a king-sized bed can feel sometimes while at other times it can be a large expanse of solitude. This morning was a large bed feeling. Before I was really awake, I stretched my legs seeking a little toe snuggle but ended up with my lonely left foot snuggling my lonely right foot. Not exactly what I had in mind.
I did some blog surfing this morning. It's all Katrina, no real surprise. There seem to be three distinct tones: those who share where and how to help, those who intensely criticize the lack of response by our federal government, and those who defend the government vehemently. One unifying thread that runs among them all is anger, just the target of the anger varies.
Fingers can be pointed in so many directions, but to what end? Part of me thinks, "STFU and let's work together to help these people! This should not about politics!"
But unfortunately it is about politics and will go down in history as such.
Government of the people, for the people, by the people---my ass!
Our country is horribly off track.
