This too shall pass

And so the saga goes on; today's food crisis overshadowed by political rango tango. But this too shall pass. For those who say that is not right, I say, right or wrong, it is the reality we the people have created for ourselves, and so it is our cross to bear. Yes, we're outraged today, but tomorrow we'll settle back into complacent acceptance. Rising food prices, rising crime, return of kidnapping, private jet, million-dollar bailout of unprofitable hotels, centralised development, rural and agricultural neglect; yes we complain, but nothing more. We hold no one accountable.
