Dealing with a lot of them these days. But, as a member of my family said to me yesterday, "If Obama can become president, you can get through this."
Meanwhile, in the big outside world, the President is going to close Guantánamo. A decision not without risk. But a human is a human and torture is wrong. We become what we dole out to others. So beware what you sow.
Better to sow the good seed -- even if you never see it grow and bloom. Others will.
How hard it is to live by principle, to live truthfully, to negotiate the shoals of institutional life -- all institutions, without exception.
