binders full of women

We carry on, in the face of a natural disaster, sea changing into an economic disaster, that could balloon into a humanitarian hazard or crisis should little be done by those who we elect to be our sheppards. We push the office desks and tables to the wall to create a communal space in the middle of the room. We carry on by playing Beta Band's “Dry The Rain”, while sitting around a circle of candles, all holding hands and swaying back in forth. The cartharsis, like an energy cable surges from hand to hand, body to body, and we feel cleansed of the bad records that October brought. We stop caring about Binders Full Of Women Halloween costumes. We stop caring about Death Grips' social media stunts. We stop caring about Zooey's growling and cracking through our nation's anthem at the World Series. We stop writing that strongly worded letter to Fox regarding planting their TV stars in sporting events and how we'll allow them to have a seat, but not sing. We stop caring about Cee Lo Green the talking head on The Voice and go back to caring about Cee Lo Green on Outkast's “Git Up Get Out”. We stop calling him Ben and start calling him Benjamin. It will be alright. It will be alright…
