In "Catholic High School" you list a number of things you don't trust (politicians, religion, etc.). Is there anything you trust in without question?
I think you can trust in your instincts. I just think sometimes our perceptions are misguided because of things we're used to, but usually our instincts are right on about things.
I'm sure it's happened before [laughs]. I'm not always right about things--I don't think anybody is--but for the most part it's been OK, and I haven't gotten into too much trouble yet. Knock on wood.
