13 things my uncle told me before he died:
not everyone has the blessing to understand sadness
when waiting at the bus stop, it’s okay to smoke cigarettes
never touch anyone else’s clothes at the laundromat
it’s okay to miss the people who were bullets to you
when your grandmother asks you how you are, be honest
never be afraid to say “no” even after you’ve said “yes”
if someone tells you graffiti isn’t art, prove them wrong
remember people by their eye color not their clothes
you’re allowed to like dark chocolate with tangerines
don’t lie that you don’t have a lighter when you really do
turn your phone off every once in a while and find the moon
if you want a tattoo, don’t let anyone tell you not to get it
if you ever find yourself at the graveyard, read the names

Gladstone and Stephen Colbert know who Jonathan Swift is, but not everyone else has caught up.
3 Modern Satirists Screwed by People Who Didn’t Get the Joke

#3. Stephen Colbert Gets Attacked by a Hashtag Activist Who’s Wrong About Everything
In [an interview, Suey Park] describes how she “saw the hashtag as a way to critique white liberals who use forms of racial humor to mock more blatant forms of racism.” I read the interview several times, reading all the poorly chosen, unconvincing words. And maybe I’m wrong, but, quite simply, despite the loads of verbiage, I’m pretty sure Park simply feels that there are certain no-no words, bad words that can never be used to prove any point or be justified by any context.
I reject that out of hand, as should anyone with an active mind. Park’s lack of faith is not with Colbert, of whom she claims to be a fan, but the rest of society. She does not believe people can hear uncomfortable or provocative jokes in any context that would justify their use without adding fuel to the fire of racism.

There is no evidence that we’ve been placed on this planet to be especially happy or especially normal. And in fact our unhappiness and our strangeness, our anxieties and compulsions, those least fashionable aspects of our personalities, are quite often what lead us to do rather interesting things. — Jon Ronson
Don’t give up on books. They feel so good — their friendly heft. The sweet reluctance of their pages when you turn them with your sensitive fingertips. A large part of our brains is devoted to deciding whether what our hands are touching is good or bad for us. Any brain worth a nickel knows books are good for us. — Kurt Vonnegut

When it Comes to Marriage, Love Beats Tradition


I’ve been getting invited to more weddings lately. About a year ago, France legalized same-sex marriage. They didn’t stop there – gay and lesbian couples now have the right to adopt…
