Motivation for another day

Not much analysis other than we died in another Kendrick air raid last night. (When does the hurting stop?) That, and Nick Groke set off a Twitter storm that ended up with folks attacking Tracy Ringolsby for defending Tulo. Gawd. The comment wasn’t completely out of context.
