Glass Houses

Eight thirty five.

Visibility is poor from the thick fog outdoors, but I made it to the store okay. It was only 27 degrees. I asked Suk about Michelle: she’ll be back on Valentine’s Day, though he’s not pushing her… Another blogger’s attitude got me thinking about moralism and the hypocrisy of judging and prescribing for other people. It’s always better to describe than to dictate to people what you believe is good for them. But it’s a fine line, and it’s easy to make yourself absurd by just saying something. Every moralist runs the risk of hypocrisy. “Whoever is sinless among you, throw the first stone.” I like to think that I’ve outgrown the impulse to moralize. However, even to make a statement like this throws a rock, and my glass house will be vulnerable to attack.
