see how long that positivity lasted?!?!?!
but... but... blissful ignorance is not the solution.
this will settle out soon, since i live a comfortable middle class american existence and have to experience no particular hardship thus leaving me able to forget the suffering of others for brief periods of time.
unrelated: at the border's today i could not procure that which i was seeking because a thief with superb taste had run off with literally every criterion collection dvd in the white flint store.
[edited to note: low blood sugar has a tendency to sap the positivity. better keep this well in mind.]
