Social Media Cesspool!

I'm with Kevin Drum on the "social media cesspool." So much toxicity, negativity. Folks who used to sit in their living rooms yelling at the TV, they now have various social platforms that allow them to vent. Off the top of their heads.

Everyone has something to say. And lots of what they have to say is drivel, or hurtful, stupid and ugly. Maybe it's better to take a moment and think before we type? Twitter seems to encourage the "know-nothings" to let it all out.

Pretty ugly. And not exactly a positive social phenomenon. There is something to be said for not saying everything that pops into your head. Reminds one of those folks shuffling along the boulevard shouting at the wind. Madness!
