Trying to make sense of a weird world - and maybe make it a little better

All the worst
As a general rule, I try not to delight in the misfortunes of others; and I have seen enough dysfunctional families to sympathise with those trapped in them. Yet against my better judgement, I found it hard not to feel a smidgen of pleasure when reading this story yesterday. CY Leung has caused so much harm to Hong Kong that it is only natural to feel a twinge of enjoyment at the discomfiture he must feel when seeing his family's dirty linen hung out in public. Ignoble of me, sure, but I';d be willing to bet that many other Hongkongers feel the same way.
