Since I met the devil I ain't been the same

I've been trying to compose my thoughts on the recent abortion decision, the Bush administration, the political process, truth, justice, and the American way. But, in truth, I am too tired. I used to love to argue, and I did, endlessly. (I think you'll find that you can never convince me I'm wrong.) I am exhausted by how much there is to fight, how useless I feel before it all. I vote, regularly and often, but it doesn't seem to change anything. And, in truth, most of these decisions don't change anything, literally at least, for me -- I recognize my own privilege, my ability to circumvent these decisions if I need. The only thing that seems to be changing is me.
