It's written decently and surely nothing I'm about to say is in conflict with what the author is aware of but man-oh-man does it bring tears to my eyes to read this while thinking about the 90k in loans that I have, in spite of going weeks at a time subsisting on next to nothing in terms of food in a shared room in SF. I paid $650 a month to rent a bedroom here and barricaded my door at night to keep the cocaine addict in the adjacent room from coming in and harassing me.

I just can't even picture a life you're describing, even as a fellow writer with an overly romantic view of the world.

Yes folks, it's your head. That's also what the people who don't wear riding hats say. It's their head. But it's their family who end up having to care for them after horrific accidents that came out of nowhere.

See also, "but I'm a good rider, so I don't need a helmet".

@laurel I think thje joke was that you were supposed to think he was perving on them but actually he was just wishing they would use the correct safety gear for their activity.

"another, larger, group who left the work force at that time — poor mothers who couldn’t afford child care — went without notice."

THEN CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THESE PEOPLE AND THE INTERSECTIONALITY BETWEEN RACE, CLASS AND GENDER FOR FUCKING ONCE INSTEAD OF YET ANOTHER ARTICLE TELLING US IT'S ALL OUR FAULT

FUCK this.

I think this interview needs an embedded photo of Firth's Darcy in the wet shirt, for...reference.
