Deep Breaths, Folks

Don't get me wrong. The Oracle takes his politics very seriously. But, have you ever known someone who took intensity to the level of making everyone else's skin crawl a little bit? Someone who gets that wild look in his eye, that edge in his voice, that tautness in his jaw at any opportunity to lay out what he sees as right or wrong in the world? Someone who finds a mild joke aimed at one of their pet projects to be an assault on human decency and laughter to be an affrontery to justice?

If you need an example, see Nathan Moore's humorous jab at a newspaper's unfortunate placement of a picture and the too intensely wound responses of Moore's commenters.

The Oracle understands that there is medication for such conditions.
