I’ve been pretty vicious this week. Sorry for being so over-cranky—for some reason, the usual Sturm und Drang of the internets has been getting under my skin much more than usual. Regular programming will resume after a nice, long weekend.

While I have protested at your tone in the past, IMO you are perfectly in tune here.

“Anger is easy. Anger at the right person, at the right time, for the right reason, is difficult.”
— Aristotle, in the Nicomachean Ethics, book IV, chapter 5 (lightly paraphrased)

“Telemachus, now is the time to be angry.”
— Odysseus, when the time came to deal with the Suitors. From the movie The Odessey (1997)
