The economy is in the tank. Our global reputation is at the lowest point of my lifetime, perhaps in history. We find ourselves in a sad quagmire of an unprecedented preemptive war. Our moral standing has dissolved in lies and torture. The media — who must play the role of truth- and justice-seeker in a healthy democracy — has become a corporate purveyor of personal destruction and government propaganda.

I was born as Vietnam was ending, grew up under the uncertain specter of nuclear war, and sat helpless as the World Trade Center crumbled seven years ago. But tonight, for the first time in my 35 years, I am truly worried.
