2.18.2011 | The scrape of the real


So busy being a corporate citizen and citizen product that I can't elevate the revolution occurring in North Africa above background noise. I catch the headlines but they are as flat as ever. And without the broader context that can answer the question "Why now?", I feel like I'm coming upon the reporting as if having just emerged from a coma. I fear that I'm just a sleeping passenger as the trajectory of history makes a sharp turn.
