You were sort of a jerk, but at least you had a sense of humor. And in a world full of jerks, that counts for something.

“The worst thing is that we live in a contaminated moral environment. We fell morally ill because we became used to saying something different from what we thought. We learned not to believe in anything, to ignore one another, to care only about ourselves. [...] The previous regime — armed with its arrogant and intolerant ideology — reduced man to a force of production, and nature to a tool of production. [...] It reduced gifted and autonomous people, skillfully working in their own country, to the nuts and bolts of some monstrously huge, noisy and stinking machine, whose real meaning was not clear to anyone. [...] We had all become used to the totalitarian system and accepted it as an unchangeable fact and thus helped to perpetuate it.” — Václav Havel, New Year’s Address to the Nation, Prague, Czechoslovakia, 1990.
Just missed him....I'm moving to the Czech Republic in two weeks!
