Wishing for the Simply Life

Maddie made two good points in her blog entry on Tim Lemire's I’m an English Major—Now What? which made me think.  First that we are the only ones who can decide what is best for us and when.  I think we all want someone to tell us what to do to some degree.  I think it goes back to the same reason we wish there was a big book of answers that all the English teachers have.  Life would be so much simpler that way…but it would also be more boring.  Secondly, Maddie makes and interesting point about tolerance.  I have run into many people who claim to dislike reading.  And I agree we need to be tolerant of their feelings, however, I would like to point out that they are usually not tolerant of ours (those of us who love to read), so I think both sides need to work on that issue.
