Startups are hard. When you read the press you only read the glamorous bits. You read about Mark Zuckerberg or the guys at FourSquare, Twitter or Zynga.

I really wish silicon valley would go back to doing what theyre good at -- blowing bubbles and funding video games. Let the adults who take the time to study history, politics and real issues -- 9/11, debt, war, civil liberties -- focus on the ugly stuff.

"Writing about the segregation era, Buchanan observes, “Back then, black and white lived apart, went to different schools and churches, played on different playgrounds, and went to different restaurants, bars, theaters, and soda fountains. But we shared a country and a culture. We were one nation. We were Americans.”"

... I'm stupefied
