In the spirit of MLK Day of Service, I'd like to throw this question out there. You may have a particular charity that you donate to regularly, or an organization in which you volunteer when you are able. Either way, you're doing your part.
Downton Abbey is a very popular PBS television series about early 20th century life in England which recently returned for its 4th season. There was a Facebook personality quiz making the rounds titled "Which Downton Abbey Character Are You?" My personality was revealed as Lady Sybil. My friends took delight in learning that they were Anna, or Mary, or one of the other multifaceted characters on this brilliant series.
I recently read an Internet blurb that big Internet companies (including Google and Microsoft) are urging the government to scale back on its Internet spying of citizens. Many are concerned about the NSA overreaching and its effect on privacy. One judge ruled that it was overreaching; another ruled that spying was warranted, given the threat of terrorism. I'm not sure how it's going to eventually play out.
