Big smiles out on the town last weekend.

This is something great that I had a few of last weekend—Tecate with “the works” at The Wayland in Alphabet City. It’s just hot sauce, spices, and some lime juice on the top of the can, and it’s delicious.

  • Jack Antonoff: New Jersey is a wonderful place specifically because of its proximity to the greatest city in the world. And that's why it's so special. Everyone from New Jersey always feels like they're looking into the window of the party.
  • Marc Maron: Right. But you can leave the party. Unlike people who are stuck at the party forever.

It’s easy for the victims to say they forgive. The guilty cannot forgive themselves.

Deborah Feldman, a former Hasidic Jew, relaying the words of her German boyfriend’s mother about the Holocaust (I Need to Talk About Anne Frank - The Moth)

I don’t completely love this author after reading her book Unorthodox, but she speaks well and this Moth story is worth listening to.

A Q&A column in the Wall Street Journal rubbed me the wrong way this morning:

Dear Dan, 
One of the not very well-paid cleaners working in my office sometimes chats with me about her life, including her family’s financial difficulties. Last week, she told me that she had just got a puppy. I was shocked that she would take on the responsibility of caring for a pet when she doesn’t have the money to take care of her family. How could someone in her situation be so careless and irresponsible with money? —Andrea

I could only think of this photo and Facebook comment from Humans of New York last month that gave me a strong dose of perspective and compassion. 
My views on dogs and money seem to have shifted as of late.
