But I was particularly struck by this passage, from a Sunday, November 9 post (all typos are original):
History, which I am pretty much illiterate on, as I am on most subects. My education went in one ear and out the other...I just didn't have the patience to sit and study, combined with my very timid nature in social settings; making it very difficult for me to learn, but I made it to gain a high school diploma. It is a miracle that I am sitting her typing this today.A rare moment of candor, this.
It's schadenfreude to read, of course. But we've earned it.
