I am a Bitch and Catherine is a Mensch
Today I got the loveliest email from someone to whom I behaved hideously on this blog. I posted a sour and bitchy comment about Catherine Newman's column, based on having read a single one. I criticized her for being something that she isn't -- cloying. She sent me this email basically saying that I hurt her feelings, but she thought we had a lot in common. We might have a lot in commom, but she is much more generous and much nicer than me.
I then went to read her archived column, and it's great and does not deserve my snarkiness.
I owe an apology to Catherine, and to her fans. I am so so sorry.
People, go ahead and blast me when I behave badly. I promise I'll learn from my mistakes.
