Eat Your Dirty Laundry!

Okay, I admit that this time of year does little to ease the growing cynicism eating away at my soul. But seriously, it’s hard for me to see how anyone can feel happy after today’s CIA brutality revelations are layered on top of all the police brutality revelations we were already drowning in.
