Tonight, on the longest day of the year, I sat and watched Venus in the Western sky, shining impossibly bright after sunset. It will do that long after we're gone. And the sun will rise and set. And perhaps, down the road, we'll forget about this disaster. But at the moment, it's hard to believe we ever will.
