and please tell me what you think. I think this man is being incredibly selfish. I think this woman is either in denial, or is too simple to realize he is using this as an excuse. I read this, and my first thought was, "WHY is this in the Wall Street Journal?", and my second thought was, "This sounds like a typical selfish New Yorker attitude". It falls into the me, me, me, not the we, we, we. I think that is the biggest difference between the north and the south. In the south we are raised in a "WE" culture, but in the north it is much more "ME".
