…from my apology the other day:
1. Reconciliation with Steve Kellmeyer, who was the soul of graciousness in my comboxes.
2. Hearing from a dear friend who, unbeknownst to me, had been hurt by me being an idiot. That meant a lot too.
3. At least two pieces on the web, here (from the typically smart Leah Libresco) and here (by the impressively-named Erin Glaser Arlinghaus), remarking on the phenomenon of treating public figure as though they are sort of semi-fiction and using them as means to rhetorical ends.
4. The sheer magnanimity of youse guys.
Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
