Tonight I will do data entry for the Democratic party; atonement for allowing my privilege to cause me to ignore the midterm elections. The enormity of the government's cold-cocking is just now being felt. I know the painful experience.

No more cheating to win. No more sloth. No more self-deception. My weak, cowardly soul sighs from the notion of spiritual exhaustion.
