My kids' current favorite show is Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs pitch ideas to a team of corporate tycoons who double as potential investors. While listening to concepts for, among other things, collapsible kayaks and colored fur spray for dogs, my daughters vigorously interrogate the television.
Let's face it: most of us don't like David Gregory. He's the smug brat we always hated in high school. No wonder so many of us are salivating at rumors that NBC may relieve the grey-haired wonder boy from his Meet the Press duties.
When I went through my own battle, the last thing I ever wanted to do was to "be a burden" on anyone. I'm not saying that I didn't have people close to me, but I would only let them in so far.

I don't particularly remember saying goodbye to Tim. Once he'd pried Moynihan out of the editor's corner office, he had no reason to linger. Our lives would go on, we'd never share another word, let alone an adventure.
