the difference is...

not that you can sum up the difference btw people in one quick pithy statement (although doing the crossword on my commute makes it seem more plausible) -

the difference between us is that you only like people you can feel sorry for. whereas the only people i dislike are those that i feel sorry for.

(there has to be a better way to phrase that...chiasmus? er?)

these days there's the small problem that i feel sorry for everybody.

who is the "you"? who knows. it could be you, it could be everybody...
