Yesterday, CNBC ran a story about a diver who was partially swallowed by a great white shark. The shark had bitten into his mask and didn't penetrate the mask, although it had quite a bit of the man in it's mouth. The man got the shark to let him go by jamming his thumb in it's eye.
Sunday night, a young woman on Donald Trump's TV show "The Apprentice" quit the show before going back to the "Boardroom" and fighting for her 'job'. Her argument was that she had signed up for what she had experienced during the show. Trump tried to talk her out of it. He even told her that she would look back on this later in her life and regret the decision. In this case, I believe that Trump is absolutely correct.
I have a good friend who has struggled to keep her marriage together for several years now. She got her husband to attend therapy sessions. One day recently, her husband decided to stop going to therapy since it was a waste of time. In other words, he quit. There's kids at stake, and he quit. He didn't offer to try a different therapist, he just quit.
I'm an egalitarian. Everyone is equal, we just develop differently. Prove to me that you aren't equal, and you aren't. My friend is a winner. She will emerge better and stronger from this, and I will always be her friend. Her adversary.....Pluto is a dwarf now, but you knew that didn't you.
