We interrupt the full-tilt bitching starting tomorrow …
Today being Memorial Day and all, I thought talking about my dad, he being a veteran and all (AAAAAAIIIIIIRRRR-Borne! Woo! Go 101st!), would be cool, except he never saw combat. And sure I know that doesn't matter, but I had a better idea: With Dad's birthday, Father's Day and wedding anniversary in June, I decided June would be the perfect month to write an entry a day devoted to nothing but him. Good memories, bad memories, indifferent memories, only entry of the day, whatever, will be coming at you, and me.

In other business, the Memorial Day tribute I covered this morning? Why did they allow "Taps" to be played by one good trumpeteer, only to have him mirrored by someone who couldn't carry a tune to save his damn life!?! Good Christ, there's nothing that'll ruin an event quicker for me than someone who can't sing-play their instrument.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
