You never know what’s around the corner, do you? One minute you’re happy and safe and smug about it, the next minute, everything’s taken away from you.
There’s no advantage to being nice and thoughtful and caring and having integrity. It’s a disadvantage, if anything.
There is no bright future in journalism. By the time you’re a features writer, there won’t be newspapers as we know them because it’ll just be a s*** storm on the Internet. People posting nasty, f***ing hateful opinions that aren’t even theirs because their editor told them to, to get clickbait for f***ing advertisers because the world is full of f***ing morons. It’s awful. It’s an awful future.
Most people are all right. They’re just having a bad day. Sometimes they don’t think, they get caught up in their own lives. They’re just trying to survive. Bad things happen to good people, good things happen to bad people, and sometimes it’s just no one’s fault.[to Tony]
