Short People Don’t Need a Reason

I’m tall. I get a better view at movies and concerts. I’m closer to the basketball hoop. But there are downsides. I’m a lot less comfortable flying coach in an airplane. And I’ve noticed that I don’t see too many really old tall people. Sadly, The Atlantic’s James Hamblin confirms that I’m onto something in his piece, the virtue of being short: “When a tall person blocks your view of a concert, allow them their privileged vantage with a laugh. Death will come for them.”
