The sight of the weeping and wailing, rending of garments and gnashing of teeth on the part of all the right people is so satisfying that one is tempted to simply stand by and drink it up – especially when you live and work in an area like mine, where one would risk immediate lynching should one indulge in the least bit of public gloating.
That said, making sense of recent events and understanding how to move forward is the task that faces us now. In my own modest way I will be trying to contribute to that discussion in the days and weeks (and months?) to come.
If you are interested, please stay tuned.
