O Lord, make us philosophers
happily embracing our ignorance,
unwilling to conclude anything
about people or issues based
on hearsay or good reporting,
on rumor or our own eye witness.
O Lord, make us decisive,
willing to act to the
best of our knowledge,
not with an assault rifle,
but with open arms,
even though we act in ignorance,
seeing through a glass darkly.

The notorious Comet, accused of child trafficking with fake news, and then someone with an assault rifle fired a shot and was arrested. Your shot is much better with the floating balls of light. While you and I were there, we picked up a story from the bartender about using a Brita Water Filter to clean-up cheap vodka, which almost sounds illegal.
