    I just don't understand why people are so quick to write off the suffering of those who live in the Negev because of what happened during Cast-lead. One groups suffering does not need to be compared to another's - both are very real and should be treated as such. But the most troubling is that people on this talkback have written that people's "chances" of getting killed are minimal so it's hard to feel sympathy...fine YOU live there. You live with 15 seconds to run for your life. You raise your kids there. Try taking a shower or going to the bathroom knowing that at any moment someone could shoot a missile at your home. Have a little compassion and stop looking at what's happening in the Negev as just statistics in a book. Imagine your family living under these circumstances and maybe then you won't be as cold-hearted to what went on prior to Cast Lead.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
