I have never been accused of sexual harrassment. If you have, Herman Cain, don’t blame the liberal media, Barack Obama or those two women you harrassed…Blame yo-self! If the rest of us are at fault ’cause we ain’t rich, then you’re to blame for not keeping your hands off women who aren’t your wife. Blame yo-self!

See, Herman. That’s how it feels. So which is it? We’re eiether captain’s of our own ships, plowing straight lines through life, able to overcome all adversity from poverty to war to cancer simply by force of will, or we are participants in a complex dance of fate in which all of us understand and share in each others trials and blessings. One or the other. One is lonely and harsh, the other softened by community and compassion. We either pull ourselves up by the boot straps or get left behind, or we sometimes need a merciful hand. Can’t be both.
