The way things are going in this country, I'm forced to conclude that it's either Peak Stupid or people have simply lost their flipping minds. So if you're part of the problem, out raising or meta-raising hell over stuff most people don't even notice over the ringing silence of empty factories and the hot hum of angry minds all around, go ahead, look right at the eclipse; those stories about it being bad for your eyes are probably just a leftist conspiracy or a capitalist plot.
...Or maybe, just maybe, as you start to glance skyward, it'll dawn on you that not everything is the result of some wicked, ill-defined Them, and you'll look away.
But I doubt it.
Title borrowed from a Tanith Lee novel about a character who wants to grow up but can't quite manage to, and modified to fit.
