On campus this week I saw a poster entitled
"Acceptable Reasons to Cry in Public."
Some googling informed me that the posters are some sort of
public spectacle essay/art installation.
There were some pretty sad things listed on the poster, like
"You saw an old man at the grocery store
buy one can of cat food,
a pint of milk,
and a candy bar."
However, my personal feeling is that any reason to cry
is an acceptable reason to cry in public.
