"Let others complain that our age is evil; my complaint is that it is paltry. For it is without passion." (Kierkegaard, Either/Or, 1843)

Allow me to second Spangles' recommendation of Gurrado's piece. Poetic, poignant, and perceptive, which is a bloody hard thing to pull off at the best of times, let alone in the confused aftermath of last Sunday, especially when one is surrounded by commentators falling over each other in a mad scramble to take advantage of a tragedy.Bravissimo.
