You know, the reasons I didn't look at it that way at the time is because:
- Things in the US are arguably worse or at least equally concerning in different ways
- Noticing and noting patterns is what writers do
- Being an ED curmudgeon is what *I* do
- I didn't think of myself as an outsider
POSTSCRIPT: leaving this up to make sense of the comments elsewhere, but I've put the post back up. Lisa, playing the part of Charlotte today, gave me a hiding but good for self-censorship. This blogging thing, my friends, is more complex than you'd think. Yes, I made a few edits to clarify.
Please return to your regularly scheduled activities.
