Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently: I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we?re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought.

Well, here’s another column by Stephen Collins. Another column, another day, and another dose of his key words and phrases. It’s like a particularly grim drinking game, isn’t it?
