Anger is a Gift

My friend Madmunk at Philanthropica returned to writing about a month ago. Today, on Election Day, this post struck me (although Madmunk is writing about nonprofits and philanthropies, and not about political action):

Professionalism has its place. Humor and whimsy, I suppose, have their places, too, but so do our passions, so does our anger. And yet we continue to speak this suffocatingly reasonable vocabulary of effectiveness and accountability, this stilted professional jargon of leverage and targets and benchmarks. Do you people ever get angry?
