Whitney likes people, it's clear. Whitney, in my book, rules. A lot.
It seems like such an uncomplicated thing, liking people. Yet I don't think it comes naturally for most. I've heard way too many stories about El Presidente Arbusto just Not Caring about the poor and the retarded and everyone else who isn't a white CEO. And it's not only him - there are just too many examples of people who can't stand other people, who think they're better than everyone else and who don't get that in the long run, we really are all the same, even though we may seem completely different.
Be kind. That comes from something, and it's possibly Molly Ivins, which makes this post very Texan intensive. *g*
A tip of the hat towards Corpus Christi, and towards everyone else who cares about caring.
