I have plenty of people I admire and people whose opinions I value. I don’t, therefore, subscribe to the mealy-mouthed inanity that is today’s self-help genre of literature, nor to the ever so many and ever-growing number of people willing and eager to dish out advice to any and all takers, through any medium that will tolerate them. Like this dumb-ass:
I’d like to ask the stupid git – couldn’t you have picked something made of, you know, steel?
