I mean it. I look at some of these web comment threads full of vigorously asserted nonsense. I see hatred and bigotry rampant and it’s depressing, palpably depressing. It’s depressing because it’s hopeless at least in those microcosms of web sites. I got a nonsense right-wing chain email from a friend today. It was depressing too. Two minutes on Snopes showed it was all made up.
Some of this is of no consequence, but when a large part of the Congress is made up of climate change deniers, real harm could be done. Are millions of Americans going to lose their health care in 2017?
At least my mood lightens when I come here.
