Leslie Goldman: "In the past week, I have found myself either on the verge of tears or simply overflowing with them for reasons ranging from a pregnant friend who gave birth to a lovely little girl to waiting in line at the slowest line ever to purchase a frigging package of batteries to thinking about a friend of my family who is dying far too young from cancer to - get this -welling up at the end of afootball movie on an airplane when the underdog scored the winning touchdown. (That last one made my husband cry - it's taken him a decade to teach me what a down even is.)"
