I Believe… [The Monotony of Public Outrage]
…that somehow knowing I’ll be living in the desert in a month is making the mild ass Chicago January we’re having seem bitter cold.
…that now, more than any time in my half century, the adage of casting out the beam from one’s own eye before dealing with the mote in one’s neighbor is most apt for society. Social media contains a lot but is in great abundance with hypocrisy.
…that, instead of spare change, we should all commit to getting the homeless free gym memberships. Showers, pools, and as long as you’re working out, you can stay inside all day.
…that when outrage becomes so normal and monotonous that the expression of it is merely annoying rather than inspiring, perhaps a step back is necessary. I’m not tone policing, I’m tone suggesting.
…that, speaking of outrage, it is a little extraordinary that Louis C.K. can be hounded for every word he says in public but R. Kelly is still remarkably out of jail and in business and Bryan Singer’s latest film just got a Golden Globe.
