Like many of you, we’ve been glued to our TVs and computers the last several days watching the tragedy in Japan go from bad to worse. While we Bugs value our roles as ambassadors of the snarky and superficial, even we can’t pretend that the problems we face locally–industry loss, land use disputes and a bottle-necked economy–appear anywhere on the list of things that really matter right now. Still, onward and forward and that sort of thing. But for a while at least we might keep in mind that these little wars we wage are, in the larger scheme of things, over not very much at all.
