Subject: RE: What's left to sing about...
It's so wonderful that everyone has meaningful employment, hate crimes are a thing of the past, equal work is finally receiving equal pay, racist hiring and promotion have gone the way of the pet rock, crime is almost nonexistant, the rich are no longer exploiting the poor and middle-class, foolish laws about things consenting adults do in private have all been stricken from the books, international conglomerates are no longer forcing poor third-world farmers to plant cash crops on every spare acre instead of allowing them to grow food crops in small plots, land mines have been banned by all nations and all the in-place ones have been removed and destroyed, basic health care and access to information are no longer denied on the basis of ability to pay, large and powerful nations no longer dictate policy for smaller and less powerful ones, corporate rape of the natural environment has been totally eliminated, chemicals known to cause permanent environmental damage are universally banned, and the American League has finally dropped the designated hitter rule.

Yes, now that there is nothing to protest about, things are pretty boring.
