Joe Queenan, Wall Street Journal

Today’s quote of the day (although it may end up being just the first quote of a very very very long day) is this from Joe Queenan’s Moving Targets column in the Wall Street Journal:

Queen Elizabeth II —  or someone resembling her —  parachuted out of a helicopter to help launch the London Olympics.  The Queen’s reward for being such a good sport was having to listen to The Who sing “Hope I Die Before I Get Old,” which they will perform anytime, anywhere, entirely without irony.

    Mr. Joe Queenan,
    How sad it is that my 27 year old daughter reads the AARP article of Men Who Don’t Cheat and decides that men are either to ugly, to stupid, to lazy or know they’ll get caught. as the reason why a man won’t cheat. A man who cheats has no value of himself or the others he is about to hurt. Instead of applauding the growth of a man and a woman, and celebrating the dance of life one does together, dancing apart, dancing together and allowing for growth, you’ve given her a reason to not allow herself to be free to jump into love and watch believingly how it will or will not grow. Your belief that woman already know this, when a child sees an unfaithful father, and a mother who stayed to long, it has challenged her own belief in the possibility that it does work. Integrity, value of one self, value of the partner you wish to experience life with. There is know better joy to experience. We compliment each other, that is why we all learn how to dance our own dance.

      Nancy,

      Somehow, your comment got left on my blog but all I did was quote something by Joe Queenan of the Wall St. Journal. You wanted to send the comment to him, right?
