I’m adding Morning Martini to my already-overloaded RSS feed on the strength of this post alone (and a hearty hat tip to Bring It On): 

“Let’s say you have a nine year old son and I have one too. We are neighbors. We look outside and see our kids fighting. They are hitting one another with big pieces of lumberand both are bleeding. Which do we do first? Do we try to figure out a way to keep them from fighting in the future, as they continue to beat the hell out of one another? Or do we stop the fight, get the kids cleaned up, see to their wounds, and then work on away to stop them from fighting in the future?”
