This week, Twitter was plagued with more fail whales than the Cape Cod coast (and SMITH got a taste of bad tech medicine, too), Eddie Fisher and Larry Summers both moved on (neither, seemingly, voluntarily), and health care reform kicked in (bringing Tea Party pots to a boil). And your Six-Word Memoirs gave us strength (and a few good laughs). Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending September 24. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.
