The Sadness Lingers


    This post will be very different.

    I am not going to quote anything from the piece to which I refer you.

    I do not want to take anything out of context.

    Nor do I wish to spoil the flow of what the writer has poured into it.

    Charles M. Blow’s columns in the New York Times now appear twice a week, on Thursdays and on Saturdays.

    Usually the evening before he puts up a link on Facebook and asks readers to “let me know what you think.”

    He did so tonight, for this column, whose titled I have borrowed for this post.

    I simply ask that you go read it.

    Anything else you is a blessing, particularly if you help enable others to read it.
