(Click the Play button below to watch video)

Gail Collins in the New York Times writes about listening. She tells this story: Once upon a time, there was a woman searching for a man ready to commit. She met Chuck, who told her he was planning to devote the rest of his life to saving endangered wildlife in the Antarctic and that he would soon be leaving for the South Pole. But Chuck asked the woman if she'd like to go out. After one date, the woman told her friends that she had just met the man she was going to marry. She had simply ignored the part about Chuck leaving for the Antarctic. After six weeks of heavy dating, Chuck flew to the South Pole and the woman, she never heard from him again.
