Social-networking sites are full – overfull – of inspirational horse-hockey. Here’s one I saw this morning:

You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.

(The original omitted the apostrophe; I have taken the liberty of restoring it.)

Reading this, I had two thoughts:

  • You’ve never been to Niagara Falls, have you?
  • Yes, but the rain doesn’t have to fall on me, does it?

Perhaps this means I have an attitude problem.
