The body count had barely begun before the nasty stuff on-line got started.
I was reading news accounts of the deadly tornado outbreak in the mid-west when, as is my custom, I began reading the comments. By the third post, the reactions had pivoted from concern for the survivors to whether we should hate and blame the left or the right for the storms. Seriously.
Weather tragedy is not political.
We are in trouble as a nation when every goddamn thing becomes political.
Try this three-step program:
(1) step back
(2) take a deep breath
(3) now shut up and quit typing
Time for me to follow my own advice.
