This job would be great if it weren't for the people

Lee Griess tells about a Peanuts comic strip that tickled his funny bone.  Lucy stands with her arms folded and a resolute expression on her face, while Charlie Brown pleads with her.

"Lucy," he says, "you must be more loving.  The world needs love.  Make this world a better place, Lucy, by loving someone else."

At that Lucy whirls around angrily and Charlie goes flipping over backwards.  "Look, you blockhead," Lucy screams, "The world I love.  It's the people I can't stand!"
