    •  Thanks for the additional reading (6+ / 0-)

      suggestions.  I haven't read Susan Jacoby's book yet and I'll add these four to the reading list.  I am in the process of reading Days of Destruction---Days of Revolt by Chris Hedges right now.  I have to put it down and let it "rest" every so often because it makes me so sad and upset at times.  But I want to finish it and will eventually.

        Ignorance is bliss, they say. I guess we can either read and get depressed of join the What Me Worry? crowd.
