In a Newsweek article about the overselling of happiness, we are told many great people suffered dark moods. The examples are Aristotle, Vincent Van Gogh, Abraham Lincoln, and Morrissey!!
So I'll see your "fourscore and seven years ago", and raise you a "girlfriend in a coma, I know I know it's serious"? This is what Newsweek is telling us?
This may seem like a trivial complaint, but I am telling you that it's a serious tear in the fabric of society. Vincent Van Gogh cannot be compared to Woody Allen (also on the list). Abraham Lincoln cannot be compared to freakin' Morrissey.
It just ain't right.
