To see the world in a grain of sand...

William Blake once penned the line "To see a World in a Grain of Sand" and that line has stood out for me for many years as a challenged to look for singular things that sum up something large and complex.
This year's Blake Moment was that Northrop Grumman ran A Super Bowl ad for a stealth bomber.
I think that one kernel sums up just about everything that's wrong with money, politics, sports, modern entertainment, and the military-industrial complex in America.
