I'm trying to decide what the most depressing thing I've read today is. It's a tossup between this:
Most of the commentary is focused on [Obama nominees Leon Panetta and Dawn Johnsen's] opposition to torture. Again, that is great news. However, I can remember a time when opposition to torture would have been a no-brainer. Now it’s apparently a bold stance...I wonder how much can be repaired in a country where opposition to torture is bold.
and this, which claims that the only jobs better than the one I currently have are mathematician, actuary, and statistician.
Maybe it's just the weather talking. Dark, rainy and cold tends to amplify the worst tendencies of my personality.
Gym time. Need endorphins.
