As a person with few positive virtues except for recyclying, and a propensity for overtipping, I tend to overlook nasty comments and behavior.
I mean, I do most of my grocery shopping in a store (Fairway, the original) where many people don’t consider it a good day unless they curse at ten people, hit your cart, hit you, blame it on you and then sneak ahead of you on line while cursing you.
I gauge my moods from how I react to Fairway and this past year it’s been with much amusement.
One thing gets to me: I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it–people who comment without really reading the post. My favorite person, anonymous said that I think the media spins in favor of Bush and Cheney.
I don’t watch Fox News nor do I read the New York Post on a regular basis. If I did then, yeah, I think I might say that.
My post linked to an article in The New York Times which was talking about how Bush relates to Kerik. I said that I disagreed with something in the article. That wasn’t saying that I thought the article in anyway endorsed Bush (and Cheney wasn’t even mentioned.) Actually the article had a distinct anti-Bush undertone.
I love the printed word; I love to read and it upsets me when people take a quick look at something and make a decision based on a word, a sentence, a paragraph. Few things upset me as much as that.
