On “being angry”

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Many of you have expressed anger at Lee for breaking his rule. I understand your anger. I’ve been angry too. I let him know it in no uncertain terms. While I think it’s ok to be angry and to let him know it, I don’t think it’s ok to nurse the anger. It’s not doing […]

**If you looked at this earlier today in Internet Explorer, try reading again. There was some strange script in my post.
