Seven billion people in the world. With that many people, there is no viewpoint . . . no matter how horrible . . . that does not exist somewhere. The guy you talked to actually said "sorry," which is more than you'd get from most. I'm glad it didn't bother you guys too much.
"it's good to be young but let's not kid ourselves -- it's better to pass on through those years and come out the other side with our hearts still beating;
having stared down demons and come back breathing." -- John Darnielle
