Quote of the Day: David Sedaris’ Advice to Oberlin College Graduates

Decide on one thing that you feel terribly, terribly offended by, as opposed to the dozens or possibly hundreds that many of you are currently juggling.

Stand up for what you believe in as long as I believe in the same. For those of you who want to ban assault rifles, I stand behind you 100 percent. Go on the front line, give it your all and don’t give up until you win. However, do not request that a Balthus painting be removed from the Met as you can see the subject’s underpants. The goal is to have less in common with the Taliban, not more.
