I'm a crotchety old sod, more crotchety in real life than on line, but I'm trying hard to keep myself in check- trying to play nice. It's a ghastly, old world, but we're all in it together and what's the point in adding to the negativity?
I've been reading David Foster Wallace. I hadn't heard of him before the suicide. I've read his piece on the Caribbean Cruise and his piece about 911. Here's a guy who found life so hideous he checked out prematurely, but he strove and struggled in his writing to be humane, witty, positive. I respect that.
