Hang in there!

So they're dissing you at your fast-food job? Life sucks sometimes.

Steeped in the rough-and-tumble spoken-word movement, boiled in punk rock, roasted in alcohol, pressure-cooked in American literature and turned like a newel post on the lathe of American journalism, Cary Tennis considers life's most pressing questions in audio form most every week on Salon.

This week he considers the painful teasing most all young people have to endure at some point in their lives ... and drifts off into an odd revery about going to church with his grandmother down South.

He's not really ranting this week; it's more the mellow stylings of an unflappable advice guy ... the soothing sounds of a street-smart Mister Rogers.
