Submitted for your approval...

What Atrios links us to, here.

In light of what I said below, about Niebuhr, Blake, and Shearer, this shouldn't be a surprise at all.

Not to say we can't all be disappointed. But the truth is, all outrage is personal. A gap that grows wider and wider among us as we pursue our post-Enlightenment, post-Romantic, "individualism."

"The best lack all convictions, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."--Yeats

An ugly fact of 'public' life. One that will only get uglier, as the Internets helps us magnify it.
