"Show Your Work". I think I do that too much when I write: it's not enough to state what I believe, but why I believe it, because I have this subconscious fear that at any moment I might be held to account for it, and being Wrong is kind of Sin.

--Debra Winter on The Violent Afterlife of a Recycled Plastic Bottle.
after ordering a nice cheap pair of gloves from Amazon, I wonder what it will be like for kids who witness their parents doing this...

That's kind of weird!
