My friend Jan of Happening Here, progressive activist and socio-political analyst (yes, Jan, I am calling you that), has posted something to remind us to get off our duffs and DO SOMETHING.
Her post is called Less worrying -- more working.
Still not convinced? Have some poetry. More specifically, this poem by Marge Piercy, posted by La Literata, P.J., cultural commentator. (I'm giving my friends titles their fabulous selves deserve. It's my blog and I'll praise whomever I want to praise.)
