Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.
Some people are born to lift heavy weights, some are born to juggle golden balls.
Of course, we wore silly outfits, the pictures were corny, and some people still focus on that. But ABBA wasn't a big intellectual thing. We were a pop group.
Some people are academically inclined, some vocationally and we shouldn't penalise the latter.

Unfortunately, I'm allergic to all animals and even some people.

It is not always by plugging away at a difficulty and sticking to it that one overcomes it; often it is by working on the one next to it. Some things and some people have to be approached obliquely, at an angle.
As for September 11, let us not too easily grant the Americans possession of that date on the calendar. Like May 1 or July 14 or December 25, September 11 may seem full of significance to some people, while to other people it is just another day.
Some people want to call me an Appalachian writer, even though I know some people use regional labels to belittle.
