Mister Ron's Basement #1657

We are wrapping up a week of some wonderfully feel-good tales from Charles Battell Loomis's 1908 book 'The Knack of It -- Some Essays in Optimism.'

These days, many people get angry about one thing or another and have no trouble expressing it. This is nothing new, as we see in Loomis's 1908 piece, 'On Venting One's Spleen.'

Time: approx eight and a half minutes
