I’ve been watching The West Wing. There’s an episode early in season three wherein there’s an argument about a word in the president’s speech. His staff wants him to use the word Torpor. The consultants want him to use an easier word. It’s pretty funny.

Torpor: Apathy, dullness.

That’s what you’ll find in the dictionary, right after a technical, medical definition.

I think on occasion I find myself in a state of torpor. And I want to be the kind of person who fights it with everything in me. Fight Torpor!
