On Bullshit

A couple of good friends of mine are going through pretty tough times right now and last week one of them messaged me the following thought as a follow-up to a conversation we'd had the day before and I figured it was worth sharing here.

The whole world is pretty much bullshit. Bullshit on top of bullshit. But parts aren't, too. Look for them. They're there.

Her message reminded me of a funny and witty and somewhat related 2013 commencement speech by Jon Lovett, a former standup comedian who served for three years as President Obama's speechwriter and then wrote a TV show.
