Good Morning!

November 6th, 2008

I read a breaking news flash on the CNN crawl tonight that Madonna is going on with her L.A. show despite equipment malfunctions and technical failures. I guess we’re all in the same boat, Madge. We wake up and turn on the tv and hear about yet another catastrophic malfunction in the equipment we’ve always taken for granted. The underpinnings of our society. The secure foundation of our everyday lives. Retirement funds–gone. Jobs–in danger. Health insurance–how long before our employers cut our benefits? The stock market–plunging deeper than a Victoria’s Secret bra. Given the shaky government we’ve put our trust in, I’m so impressed by the bravery of Americans in getting up every day and getting on with the job of living. And despite having been fucked over by politicians and lied to by journalists and let down by the American dream, we went to the polls and voted with the heart of a child who wakes up every morning thinking the world is a gift to be unwrapped. I love that we’re still capable of doing that.
