No Brian, You Don't Always Have to Look on the Bright Side

On "The Daily Show" last week, Jon Stewart interviewed Barbara Ehrenreich (my new hero) about her new book, BRIGHT-SIDED: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America.

She brought the house down when she tartly declaimed:
"I never think delusion is OK."

My sentiments exactly.

I LOVED that interview and I totally want to read that book now. I agree completely that it's okay to not be chipper all the time. It's a part of life. And it's far worse to kid yourself and kid other people. I think there's something really beautiful about the ups and downs of life.
