Recipe for disaster

Take a hugely complex and important issue.  Whittle away at it, cutting away all the things you don’t want to agree with, the things you don’t understand, the things that make you examine your own actions in an uncomfortable way.  Toss it into a pot with the similarly achieved opinions of coworkers, neighbors, friends.  Simmer very briefly and then serve cold to everyone you meet on Twitter and Facebook.

Wonder why it seems the world has gone to hell in a handbasket.

  1. Oh Lee Ann, this sounds like Twitter, Facebook and the United States Congress!

  2. Sometimes complex issues are, Surprise!, complex. They can't always be boiled down to a one page statement, or 15 second soundbite. Yes, it would be easier and feel more comforting and less confusing if the world was black-and-white - but it isn't. Many shades of gray, many ideas that all deserve consideration.
