On In Sympathy With Candle Sniffers

"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." – Howard Thurman

I state in all seriousness: this young man really gets it.

On Beware of This Woman: Emily Smith

To be fair, growing up here in the square states, one of the Zekes I knew did speak with a rather HopSingian delivery. I could totally see him reverently referring to Piers Morgan as "Mr. Piers."

Having not met Zeke Turner, however, I can't say whether he would use intentionally such a deferential honorific...

Your characterization of Mr. Turner as "delightful" is, for me, a good lesson in tolerance and open-mindedness.

Being from America's Heartland, I've met my share of men named Zeke; maybe viewing the world through that not-so-flattering-to-the-other-Zekes-of-the-world filter perhaps led me perhaps to be overly critical and dismissive.

The More You Knowâ„¢, etc.

On Beware of This Woman: Emily Smith

Do you think "[f]ormer Daily News gossip columnist Lloyd Grove, who described himself, at 6-foot-3, as 'large and loudish,'" really said "loudish"?

Or did he maybe say "large and loutish" and this Zeke Turner (whoever and/or whatever that is) just needs a hearing aid and/or a dictionary?
