We don't listen well to each other. Most don't even try. We've grown to accept the set of facts with which we agree while dismissing all else as wrong. It costs nothing extra to listen, to be empathetic, to think for yourself, to argue or criticize respectfully. That's all.
We live in difficult, divided times. That's never been clearer. Some topics require anger, frustration, disagreement. But even if we disagree, we can try to be kind.
Even after years as a news reporter, I'm frequently surprised at the nastiness of online comment sections. It's not just trolls. It's your neighbors and business owners and just about anyone. Too many unable (and, usually, unwilling) to discuss anything in a civilized way.
@patevans @jesseobrien @swancowski @Alyssa_Girardi Perhaps this place would accommodate a game of Louisville Chugger? It's the game that always goes well except that one time it didn't.
Difficult news. The lunch hour is the optimal time for purge-related activities.
