This is the quiet desperation of the masses. This is the pathetic morass of our culture.
We should not play along. We should get off the ride. We should not search this database for our loved ones. We should take our kids to the water park. We should close our computers and walk out into the sunshine of late summer and feel the heat of our glorious life-sustaining superstar on our cheeks.
