Advice to Young Men from an Old Man

You know, being sick affords one an opportunity to surf, catch up on a few books lying around, and generally goof off. Sure, I am napping, eating light, and generally nurturing myself back to health. Still, it is fun to find some unexpected jewels while meandering around.

This post, written over on Craigslist, is a beaut. It is advice from an old man written to all young men. Reading the post, I found myself thinking about Robert Duvall's character in Secondhand Lions, where he talks with thuggish boys about being a 'real man'. You may find some offensively stated advice, but all in all, most of it is impressive and wise.
