DON’T GET MAD, GET EVEN by Barb Goffman My brother used to say, “Don’t get mad, get even.” It confused my niece a bit when a commercial amended it to “get Glad,” which might actually be a better philosophy for life. There is no denying that it could be satisfying to balance the scales of justice in return for wrongs done, though I’m not most of us would really act on it. In these witty and well-written tales, one can have the satisfaction of revenge without harm to any actual living beings or risk of repercussions to self. Reading is such a perfect way to cope. I wanted to choose a favorite, but how? I’ll instead nominate “Compulsive Bubba” for “best seasonal public service warning.” On snowy days, stay in and read . . . and this collection is a good choice.
