We All Carry a Stick

We All Carry a Stick

Nina Camic over at the The Other Side of the Ocean makes an admirable admission:

"So, at least looking at the list in the New Yorker, I can boast my superior command over myself: I don’t smoke (never liked the stuff so I guess I can’t claim great virtue there), I keep my weight under control, I try to be nice to colleagues (last week was the exception – I was just getting back at a grave injustice that befell me!), and I don’t carry around a stick.

Or do I? It’s invisible, but sure enough, I think I do carry a stick. Darn it. I’m not even superficially perfect."

Our question is: do we not all carry a stick of some kind?
