"Be kind when you can, and forthright when you need to kick ass."
It comes from one of my favorite blog posts of all time, and this week's Debate. In case you missed this post making the rounds on Twitter, Bray received a...concerning question from a reader. And as Bray notes before giving her response, "the trouble with answering a question like this is that it makes basic One Size Fits All assumptions about happiness and prosperity and security."
Yep. And making assumptions is also the subject of the Cry article. Honestly, it did not make me cry so much as it made angry, and this may have ended up as Laugh, Get Mad, Debate, but The Bloggess posted a response to the article that swayed my response by arguing that the author "doesn't deserve our hatred. She deserves our pity."
And now, on a completely different subject, a pie chart on reasons people feel sad when reading a book. Go have a Laugh!
