Maine Craigslist Missed Connections – Can You Help?

I took a very daring and bold move and decided to check out the Missed Connections category on Craigslist.  What is this about?  People develop a crush...but leave no information on how to 'spark' a relationship with the person they are interested in.  It's almost creepy in a 'I see you but you don't see me' stalker type message that you might NEVER see if you don't go looking for it.

Are You Offended By People Being Offended?

This is 2 minutes of your time that you will find highly valuable.  John Cleese hits the nail on the head with this one.  With statements like 'being protected by uncomfortable emotion' and 'if people can't control their own emotions, then they have to start trying to control other's behavior'.  All very good points.
