When I get stressed out by work, I have insomnia, sleep fitfully, wake up groggily, and have coughing fits due to acid reflux or whatever. So tonight I took a break, which I normally do anyway when TD is around, to watch a movie--Amazing Grace! It was good. Not like England's history has been spot-free, and not like they didn't continue to be colonizing bastards, but the story of William Wilberforce and the abolition of slavery was inspiring. I feel better, and re-energized about reading depressing anti-discrimination stuff. Yes, I totally teared up at the end, when the entire Parliament applauded and Wilberforce was recognized as a man as great as any despot, but you know, great for doing good stuff rather than bad stuff.
