In Canada right now, there is a case being tried about sexual assault

It is pushing all the buttons.

The accused was (he got fired) a high profile, well-loved radio personality. And two of the main witnesses  are well-known actresses. He said. She said. Add in a hot-shot female defense lawyer, known for doing whatever it takes to get her client off. And you have an open spark to a very, very big flame.

As a general rule I try not to get embedded in public or political tests of strength as I get mired in 'all the feels'. But this case is pushing all my buttons, too.

I walked up to my studio and just let the emotions fly. A visceral, physical response to an otherwise overwhelming sense of ineptitude, helplessness and anger. Deep. Deep anger.
