Perhaps one bit of good to come of this disaster in Texas was to show us what's really important. The wars on terrorism and ignorance can wait while we take in what happened this morning. I'm sorry if you, the Readers, logged on to find something courageous, dynamic, and wonderful, and instead found this. It's only temporary I assure you.
