Before dozing off the other night, I was able to catch Michael Moore’s documentary, Sicko on cable TV. His rhetorical question hits home;
Who are we, is this what we’ve become?

Today was my 7th straight day at something. Tomorrow will be the 8th. Thankfully, there will not be a 9th. That would probably be the straw that would break this camel’s back.

No más, señor. No más. No doy más, no aguanto más.
