  1. funniest. rant. ever. and in a boston accent? so good, thanks selena. i live in chi town, so i really needed this!

  2. In the story Stop Signs, I was so angry.. how can anyone be so passive?

  3. Anonymous, you should have been angry — as I am when I think back on that time in my life. It’s not healthy or natural to be that passive. We’re made that way by things that happened to us and messages we got growing up. If anything, I want that story to be a message to adults that teaching kids to defer to others and be overly accommodating can have dangerous ramifications. Thanks for listening.

  4. I’m more sad that no one told Julie not to take abuse like that. People can be passive and know when to walk away from a situation if its dangerous. Julie is a very lucky woman since “Ron” never acted on what he threatened. I’m glad physically nothing happened and it was a lesson learned. šŸ™‚

  5. EVEN by the standards of the worst finnacial crisis for at least a generation, the events of Sunday September 14th and the day before were extraordinary. The weekend began with hopes that a deal could be struck, with or without government backing, to save Lehman Brothers, America”s fourth-largest investment bank. Early Monday morning Lehman filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It has more than $613 billion of debt.Other vulnerable finnacial giants scrambled to sell themselves or raise enough capital to stave off a similar fate. Merrill Lynch, the third-biggest investment bank, sold itself to Bank of America BofA , an erstwhile Lehman suitor, in a $50 billion all-stock deal. American International Group AIG brought forward a potentially life-saving overhaul and went cap-in-hand to the Federal Reserve. But its shares also slumped on Monday.
