Bad News 

I logged onto Atrios's blog a few minutes ago, Eschaton, and suddenly felt overwhelmed with the amount of bad news coming down. It feels like so much is spiraling out of control so fast; the concept of normalcy is being turned on its head. I'm reading Vita Sackville West's biography right now, and right before the outbreak of World War 2, everybody started drinking pretty heavily. I'm not sure I want to drink heavily, but I sure am feeling like a beer tonight. I'm having visions of popping open a few of those dusty bottles of Guinness black brew I've been storing away for a rainy day. What a soothing, dark liquid. It's raining.
