Things I did not share on social media on Feb. 15

Three rules for readers:
  1. Read charitably.
  2. Read skeptically.
  3. Read widely.
  4. Read deeply.

The question for modern journalism is who it is supposed to serve, and the unintended consequence of commercial journalism is it serves the publisher, not the public, so we continue to live in the world of 'if it bleeds, it leads.' Why it bleeds stays irrelevant.

*

Good manners are weapons and the left needs to learn how to wield them.

*

People who talk about "the wrong side of history" are on the wrong side of originality.

*

Romantic love: Platonic love with benefits.

I'm beginning to think it might not be possible to read all of Facebook.
