Isn't that a first impulse and human nature, at least for some of us - good one, Bill.

Yes, they are, Adelaide. Unfortunately, they are sometimes the ones we should look at and think about. All the best to you.

Thanks, Warren. Yes, I think we can all recognize the impulse. I think that's why I wrote the poem.

Thanks, Gwil. Does truth get the ratings?

The images send us a lot of guilt. We all dream of a perfect world, but stay powerless.

Thanks, Daniele. The question, of course, is how complicit are we in our own powerlessness.
