  •  I don't get angry with people here (3+ / 0-)

    anywhere nearly as often as I am disappointed by them. I've had life experiences that most people only read about in someone else's memoirs. I've seen quite a bit of "human nature" as result and I would like to say I know a thing or two about what Shakespeare would have called "folly." It's probably the only trait humans exhibit with any consistency. And when people today are making the same agonizing follies that ancient Greek philosophers tried to understand and resolve, you can only accept that there's some lessons this species just doesn't want to learn. No point getting angry about that. It does make me want to weep on more than a few occasions though.

    I am, however, very angry about Obama's presidency, and I am quite sure I'll be venting a lot of that anger in the coming months. But that is "adult" anger--anger about principles that have been assaulted, trust that has been betrayed and injustices that have been committed or allowed to perpetuate. I prefer to reserve my anger for those sorts of things.
