Louis C. K. my hero

Ended up somehow at a site called URL Metrics, which tells you how your website is doing. Here’s what I learned:

Elizabethkaplan is ranked 10,642,346 in the United States. ‘Born to Blog by Beth Kaplan.

Ten millionth. Some kind of record, surely.

I don’t know how this guy can be so funny and yet so wise. But Louis C. K. manages this all the time. Here – why his kids can’t have a phone leads to a dissertation on existential melancholy and the inevitability of death. Absolutely wonderful.
