Wow, strange comments tonight. I think if you look close there's a pattern, that not just these somewhat desperate reaches for words that make emotional sense from the callers... but the more calm assessments of the pundits too.

Aren't we looking at a problem of trying to treat the words that come to mind as reality, having somehow lost our grip on what we're talking about... and finding ourselves unable to tell what's real in the abnormal circumstance we're in?

Learning to tell what's real when you've lost track is a matter of acknowledging things we've casually dismissed, and looking all around.
