Let Kindness Win - blog post: the Revolution Will Not Be Televised

I don’t have a TV, haven’t for many years.  So watching the hotel’s six news outlets gave me a glimpse at the BS streaming in most homes on a daily basis. The Rittenhouse trail has gone to deliberation.  Pundits from all sides regurgitate what their team wants to hear. Heated arguments among the few gathered outside the courthouse are spotlighted. And if you blinked you missed the interfaith clergy praying near-by for sanity and sanctity to prevail.
