Has the world just changed?
I've written and deleted several blog posts today. I've been thinking about the kind of diversity we are privileged to be able to demand in the publishing industry...of how our perception of the events of Wikileaks may change now...of the disturbing array of reality-star-style individuals who make up the sad majority of our options for president in next year's election...of my friends in the military and their children and what this terrorism may mean for their families...of my own sons and the world into which I brought them...
I wonder if the world is unimaginably different since last Friday (I also wondered this on September 11, 2001, when my third son was not quite one year old). I wait, but no answers come. No reassuring words leap from my fingers to the keyboard to this post. I'm sorry.
