If you only read one thing about it-- or, more likely, if you've read plenty about it and are either borderline overwhelmed or so overwhelmed that you can hardly see "whelmed" from where you stand-- read Natalie Reed's post from a couple of days ago, "All In." It's long, but definitely worth reading in its entirety.
If you need some further explanation of the Thunderfoot thing, read this, but it really isn't the central focus of Natalie's post. More of a catalyst. I may not come down where she does on every issue, but can't find a single thing in that essay that I out-and-out disagree with. And she lays it out with a depth and feeling that makes me ashamed of how glibly I summed up the problem in my last post.
