Perhaps you’ll understand my personal frustration and anger with the Obama administration – it’s not just about the failure to stop the gusher and clean up the Gulf.

The power of myth is to shape the cosmos in which we believe ourselves to be enacting this absurd theater of life. What myths have we, and how are they shaping our world even before we act in it? Is the cosmos (and ourselves along with it) just a god-forsaken mechanism, the behavior of which ever and always is determined by outside forces?
