I keep hearing this call ringing my ears these days:
"Will the last democracy activists still standing in the Middle East today, please take a bow and leave the stage? The performance has become too lackluster and is no longer inspiring, and the entire show has become rather boring and dull."
But, being one of those diehard democracy activists myself, even from my basis here in Silver Spring, Maryland, if find it too hard to heed that call, and cannot develop any plans to go gently in that good night. Now, how else can I infuse some drama back to the show?
