    That seems to be our problem - we are so divided in who to believe. Some believe the "mainstream" media, some believe the "lamestream" media.

    Per Rodney King almost 20 years ago: "People, I just want to say, you know, can we all JUST get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it, making it horrible for the older people and the kids? … It’s just not right. It’s not right. It’s not, it’s not going to change anything. We’ll, we’ll get our justice … Please, we can get along here. We all can get along. I mean, we’re all stuck here for a while. Let’s try to work it out. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to beat it. Let’s try to work it out."

    Delivery time estimates have certainly lengthened for some things I've ordered.
