Channel surfing the news led to an awful feeling that stretched from Fed policy to geo-politics. Kiev was descending into chaos. An aging rocker was spouting semi-cloaked fascist vitriol at the POTUS. Sam Zell and Tom Perkins flipped the metaphysical bird at 99% of the country. AND... every other station and news program force fed us mind numbing information about the Kardashians and a video game called Candy Crush.
Into the gloaming, America. We've lost the last important intangible that made us great....gravitas.
