“Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson While we’re on the subject of criticism it is important to note that some is warranted. Where would we be if no one ever pointed out our faults or shortcomings? I believe what makes this sort of assessment difficult is when the fault-finding is delivered from people who matter.

It seems that Dave Ramsey has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism recently over a blog post published on his website.
