On Twitter, in front of the Alamo, in your campaign, you’ve been huffing and puffing like the Big Bad Wolf and now you’re dancing around like Little Red Riding Hood. That is not leadership.

Story time.

I just went to Starbucks and ordered a trenta iced coffee and then sat around outside for a while attempting (and failing) to connect to the internet because there were no places inside to sit. I then went to Panera, leaving my half-finished coffee in the car, and ordered more coffee… Now I have double the coffee and none of the sense.

We also know that the most vivid images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety. Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on - perseverance, freedom and love.

Coworker:
I was sick yesterday, but thankfully I'm feeling a lot better today. I just had to apply a lot of bronzer so I didn't look like I was dead.

It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.
The real ‘voter fraud’ is perpetrated by people who make bogus arguments about voter fraud.
