We live in a world with big, big problems. So many big problems that we all have to search for our own ways to cope. Some of us hit the gym. Some of us knit. Some of us become members of PETA and agitate ferociously for years to have Nabisco change the iconic packaging on its animal cracker boxes so the critters aren’t in cages. And sometimes, you succeed. So, the animals are no longer behind bars, even as certain other living beings are confronting the prospect of staring out from between them for a while. How about that? A great week all around!
