TITLE: Sometimes, You Have To Speak Up For Yourself AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: July 28, 2014 1:00 PM DESC: ----- BODY: Wisdom from the TV:
"Whatever happened to humility, isn't that a virtue or something?"

"One of the highest. People in power are always saying so."
It is worth noting that one of the antonyms of "humble" is "privileged".
This passage apparently occurs in an episode of Orange Is The New Black. I've never seen the show, but the exchange is quoted in this discussion of the show. I just realized how odd it is to refer to Orange Is The New Black as a TV show. It is Netflix original series, which shows up on your TV only if you route your Internet viewing through that old box. Alas, 30- and 60-minute serialized shows have always been "TV" to me. I'm caught in the slipstream as our dominant entertainment media change forms. -----
