I'd have left a comment on Gabe's blog, but it looks like it doesn't have that feature. Anyway, wow, that was excellent. Not to mention "timely."

It's funny how the person about whom this was written immediately recognized himself an started wailing about it. You would think he would not cop to the charges so readily.

Tony dijo...

Yeah, but these types of people crave attention, good or bad.

This part seems really sharp & on the nose:
Narcissism and alcoholism. Alcoholism is a systematic way to push down socially regulating emotions like shame, guilt, and embarrassment at one's own self-aggrandizing behavior.

Yeah, that totally needed to be said. Just sort of "came out" after watching this stuff for like a long time. I'm scared to do comment boxes -- because of all the freaks out there. Plus everyone will see that no one reads my blog.
