Are we to deprive ourselves of the help and guidance of that vast body of knowledge which is daily growing upon the world, because neither we nor any other one person can possibly test a hundredth part of it by immediate experiment or observation, and because it would not be completely proved if we did?
I Left Social Media for a Week. This is What Happened. Tired, irritable, moody; I shlepped out of bed 2 hours later than I had originally planned and looked at my face in the mirror. My eyes peered back with a glazed tint of emptiness; my skin, flat and pale; my thoughts, cutting.
There are plenty of tools I turn to before a mild episode turns serious: But this time, I knew I had to try something different. I had to make a lifestyle and behavioral change. Some could argue the digital age is what the industrial era was to the men who build America. Technology is our new infrastructure.

I shamed myself for not pursuing a career of substance and contribution. I missed communicating with the people I follow. I missed sharing my disconnected thoughts on Twitter.
At my lowest point, I just wanted to sign on to Facebook to read status updates from people who think the Onion is a real news outlet.COMMUNIQUE #3 Haymarket Issue "I NEED ONLY MENTION in passing that there is a curious reappearance of the Catfish tradition in the popular Godzilla cycle of films which arose after the nuclear chaos unleashed upon Japan.

By Lt Daniel Furseth. Today, I stopped caring about my fellow man. I stopped caring about my community, my neighbors, and those I serve. I stopped caring today because a once noble profession has become despised, hated, distrusted, and mostly unwanted.
