Live from a depressed state, Jeff Dorchen almost throws in the towel before considering the story of India's independence from Britain, the power of Gandhi's crazy / brilliant / idealistic plan, the failure of that plan, the sucesses of many others, the sneering at universal healthcare, the limits of realism and the power of moronic hatred and the no-betterness of everyone around him.
