Went down to Copley for a peace rally last night. I don't think I'm alone in caring very much about this war but not wanting to immerse myself in details. Someone near me described feeling this way to his companion, and then asked her if there was anything important he should know. "They're killing people", she replied in an anguished tone.

No, honey, we're killing people. Get it right. You and I and two hundred million other Americans are collectively responsible for this mess, and the only way to stop it is to stop thinking of it as someone else.
