January 23 Challenge: Be the OLA

(Fair warning: rated PG-13 for language)

Ever wish the world had a few less assholes?
Today's your chance to make that happen by taking the OLA pledge:  Becoming the One Less Asshole you wish to see in the world.

So just for today, if someone cuts you off in traffic, in line, in talking-- carry on with composure and reasonable-headed-ness.  Even if some jerk gives you every opportunity and justification for being a jerk back-- don't bite.  Be the OLA.

Don't worry if you don't get the chance to put this challenge into practice today.  You will, soon enough.  Memorize the simple slogan:  "OLA, baby" so you can pull it into consciousness (not outloud!) when the need arises.
