Three isn’t always a pattern.

Gotta get this off my chest.

One of them engaged in (at least) online flirting, which was a moral flaw that hurt…his wife. Its effect on me…is nothing.

Another participated in illegal commerce, and cheated on his wife. It’s effect on me — nothing.

The third? Apparently, illegally harassing city employees. Its effect on me? It’s probably going to cost taxpayer money in lawsuits, harm our ability to recruit better employees in needed city services, and generally erode trust in a major American city.

I know we as humans look to patterns, which create stories, which allow us to create beliefs with which to navigate the world.

But– let’s not forget to focus on what really is happening. If you’re not the wife, maybe…just maybe…this isn’t really about us.
