There are, of course, some people who'd rather appear moral than do good. But they're a minority. It's okay to be a vocal ally.

Thank you for making this special moment possible in my life. Off to spend quality time with fantasy boyfriend Jean Tannen.

I've been saving this for a special moment: today after a month of heartwrecking novels, I'm finally starting the 2+3 Locke Lamora books.
