Stoicism in the Media

Thanks to an online friend of mine, I just read a NY Times opinion piece that mentions and dismisses Stoicism among other Philosophies.  I decided to dust off the old blog and offer my opinion on a few of his comments.  I realize that this article's purpose was not to fully explain Stoicism, nor could such a task be accomplished in so short a space (or here, for that matter).  However, Dr. May brings up some common objections to Stoicism that I would like to address.  The fact that Stoicism merits dismissal in the NY Times marks a step forward for me.
