Facebook Seems To Be A Verb

The other day I reconsidered a personal encounter where I was not at my best and decided that I and the web might benefit from remembering Massachusetts’ classic Twelve Good Rules of Puritan Behavior:

Profane no Divine ordinance.
Touch no state matters.
Urge no healths.
Pick no quarrels.
Encourage no vice.
Repeat no grievances.
Reveal no secrets.
Maintain no ill opinions.
Make no comparisons.
Keep no bad company.
Make no long meals.
Lay no wagers.
The twelve have sweetened my life considerably.
