The united states is a cruel place

A former co-worker once told me that I was “curious about the world”.  I guess this explains my attraction to documentary films, which have become my preferred format of entertainment since one can only watch so many reboots of Spider-Man before it starts to become predictable.

Now, of course, documentaries generally only document unfortunate events or occurrences, wildlife and biography films aside.    So perhaps a steady diet of watching the documented horrors of our prison/industrial complex, the child sex-slave trade, drug wars, police brutality, mass murders of various stripes,  CIA torture centers,  you name it, has put me in a negative state of mind.  And then I reflect that Donald Trump is the President.
