Certain news is not unexpected, yet it can still be of immense significance and devastating personal impact when it is reported. (Much in that story is objectionable and misleading in various degrees. At the moment, I have no absolutely no interest in analyzing the report's failings.)

To appreciate why this matters so much to me -- and, I would suggest, why more generally it should matter a great deal to you -- you can start here.

I will very likely have more to say about this at some future date. But not now.
