I'm not around much these days, too busy doing nothing of significance, contemplating the world as I see it devolving. I'm just a guy scratching his head and wondering what the hell has happened to our state and our country. It's pretty damn ugly.
My key takeaways aren't earth-shattering, they're the things I think most days. That the human race is over-rated. That whatever trust We the People put in our institutions has been misplaced. That democracy doesn't necessarily win. That reason doesn't often prevail. That people in a position to do something important rarely do.
