Mea Culpa

March 17, 2010

I read this Op-Ed in the New York Times on Monday and realized: yikes, I am one of those people who don’t respond to email invitations. In fact, on Monday I had two outstanding email invitations I had been putting off. I have heard the knock that Americans want perfect mobility and that is why we don’t do public transportation well. It seems we also want perfect schedule flexibility, which would explain why our supermarkets are open until 11 PM, while the rest of the world must shop during the day. There is nothing wrong with buying milk at 10:55 PM. The problem is, I am now treating my friends like supermarkets. My bad. I’ll try to do better.

So you’re wondering, “Omar has not posted for over two years, and now he breaks the silence for this?”
