It's been quite a while since we've written, and seemingly even longer since we've written anything intelligent or intelligible -- nothing that wasn't scrawled in blood and abruptly shoved into your view. Certainly nothing much worth reading.
After a Constitution, Bill of Rights, and assorted amendments, we may be intellectually exhausted. You have to admit, that was a stretch of extraordinary thinking, imagining such lofty thoughts as being worth a go by mere human beings.
Of course, founding this country on genocide and slavery are facts that have kept many of us up, late at night, stark awake, inconsolably saddened.
And, as you can plainly see from modern events here, we all remain clueless how to honestly engage such horrific histories, or even begin to make such things right.
