OPINION: What we have here is a failure of Imagination

-A A +A
By Joe Zarantonello

You would have to be deaf, dumb and blind to not have noticed the current darkness in America: more black folks in our jails than were enslaved before the Civil War; climate catastrophe has become the norm; 30 million people still without health care; about 130 people die, every day, from opioid overdoses; there is still no clean drinking water in Flint, Mich.; and for me, the darkest situation of all: migrant children are being crammed into cages on our southern border. And I could go on, but I hope you get the picture — it’s dark out here.
