I wish to be as positive and intelligent, as perspicacious and wise as the three of them. But it takes lots of instruments to make up a symphony, so I write about what strikes my fancy and just try to stay on rhythm.

The truth is, when I look back on the article today, I cringe. And I don’t cringe because of all the negative comments — though, let’s be honest, that’s never pleasant. I cringe because it was something that I thought and, in my ignorance, said loud enough for the world to hear.
