Shock

I interviewed a high school teacher recently, and was mightily impressed. She complained that students are so regimented these days, they have little fun. They should remember that they go to high school only once.

I wrote an admiring story for the newspaper I work for.

She sent me an email complaining that I had distorted her views!

I suppose that, seeing the story, she got nervous--she had been too outspoken. And she tricked herself into believing that I had distorted her views. I've seen that happen -- people lie to themselves.

I wrote back that I still have my notes. (And I wish that I had taped the interview!)

And I had so admired her. And thought she was so normal and healthy.

Confirms something I concluded many years ago: Everyone is nuts.
