Disturbing Times

Make Waves. Or Bark Loudly

“The question is whether or not you choose to disturb the world around you, or if you choose to let it go on as if you had never arrived.”

—Ann Patchett, writer

Editorial Comment: I would just point out that “whether or not” is redundant. But I agree with the point: What could be more disturbing than a dachshund? Make a disturbance or crawl in a hole and stay there.
