On Exceptionalism........

Rick Grant, writing for the Housing Wire, comments on how
meeting, and listening to, exceptional people will often
necessitate the re-calibration of some of our biases and opinions.
Full essay here.  Excerpt here:

"Columnists tend to simplify the world in order to fit a chunk
of it into an 800 word piece. It can be entertaining and
sometimes informative, but its always a generalization. I'm not
apologizing; just suggesting you keep an eye out for the
exceptions. They can be wonderful to find. It's even better
when you decide to be one."
