I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel really, really tired today. Exhausted. The kind that hits you when you've been "keeping up appearances" in the face of enormous tragedy for too long. It's as much to keep from feeling the full brunt of the tragedy as it is to be strong for others needing hope and consolance. I've finally run out and now I just feel spent.

The whole situation in America is heading for the most rude awakening since the fall of Assyria and the Roman empire. By definition, America is not ready for the shitstorm to come when the whole house of cards crashes down.

To be honest, I can't wait. Maybe then American arrogance will be deflated enough to learn some humility.
