I love this paragraph:

In reality, life is perverse and human beings don't get what they deserve. The people with the worst grades start the most successful businesses. The shallowest people end up blissfully happy and they are so vapid they don't even realize how vapid they are because vapidity is the only trait that comes with its own impermeable obliviousness system. The people regarded as lightweights, like F.D.R., J.F.K. and Ronald Reagan, make the best presidents, while you - so much more thoughtful and better read - would be a complete disaster.

The full column Living Longer Is the Best Revenge appears in the NY Times, so registration is required.
This tidbit was sent to me by Amy
who is STILL reading the same 2 books - at least that is what her "book" blog says.


Don't you just love the word vapid?
