Advocacy v. Whatever
I sometimes wonder why the world has become such a dispassionate place?
Boston Legal is a slightly nutty show that sometimes errs into the absurd.
I was watching tonight and enjoyed the impassioned plea to the Supreme Court bench reminded me that it is OK to care.
My suggestion is that you stop shouting at the news on TV and start shouting at your elected representatives.
Stop accepting that your elected representatives know more than you do about how you should raise you kids - especially if they are barren harridans who have never known the daily challenges and triumphs of parenthood. The truth is they don't.
Stop leaving it three years before you exercise your mandate - democracy isn't an occasion.
