39. I feel the same way...I have friends who have
been activists for 40 plus years and I don't know how they do it. I have been SO disillusioned since November 2004 I don't know what to do. I got in a serious funk after John Kerry lost (like he was a prize, but at least he wasn't BUSH) and I don't think I've fully come out of it. I don't look to the Democrats to change because they are beholden to the same class as are the Republicans (the really rich who run this country).

People seem more concerned with Anna Nicole and celebrity news than with what really affects them. Sometimes I wish I could be totally absorbed by pop culture stuff because those folks do seem to enjoy life a lot more.

I wish I knew how to help you get out of your funk.
