Just *what* is going on?

What's going on?

Richie Havens’ cover of “What’s Going On” is this week’s “Say It In Song” pick. Some of us feel it helps to have a moment of reflection and quiet contemplation when things appear to have gone crazy. The week brought a vote by the House of Representatives to invade citizens’ privacy on the one end, and a win by the National Rifle Association against all voices in support of sane gun control legislation on the other. The tragic events at the Boston Marathon, and events in other parts of the world including the shooting in Greece of dozens of immigrants who simply wanted to be paid after receiving no compensation for 6 months.

What a mess.

What the hell IS going on?

It seems as though the world has simply gone crazy.
