Sometimes, something is just such a damn fine piece of writing and analysis that I'm awestruck and inspired. This here is a stunning little interview with Aaron Sorkin, by Sarah Nicole Prickett of the Globe and Mail. It has caused me to think seriously new thoughts about how to function as a writer in the world of the present, and also has illuminated some of why The Newsroom, despite pandering to every cliche that originally brought me into journalism, is now too depressing to watch even as a fantasy. When a fantasy that panders to my cliches is too depressing, it's because the fantasy does not really consider its own implications. But Prickett's made that clear in a refreshing and tasty way.

"Really, all that’s happening is that feminism has achieved some of its purposes and pluralism has taken root. Systems are tenuous; forces of change are multiplying; the great-(white)-man theory will not hold."

In other news, why do my eyes seem so blurry in the morning before coffee? And also, new air conditioners: They work better than 10-year-plus old ones.
