"I wish we'd make it clearer to kids that the way it actually 'gets better' is that you just get used to the idea that cruelty is a given"

From a review of the Veronica Mars movie:

The edge gets duller. You learn that even some of the most egregious forms of it are survivable. You learn there are things that can keep you off the floor: a good dad, good friends. And if you are the kind of person who has none of those things, at least you can take some comfort, in a very profound way, from a good television show like Veronica Mars.
