Scrolling Through Twitter Is No Way to Go Through Life, Son
Recorded on January 19th, 2017
As Dean Wormer said,
“Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”
Likewise, reading all of the tweets from those on my crumbling-democracy list every night is no way to go through life. It’s one way to stay informed, and it’s perversely addictive, but the cost is high. I know I can’t and shouldn’t keep this up, but I will for at least a few more days. Then I promise — maybe — to dial it back.
The clip below has more humor than the #resist movement deserves, but I needed it tonight. The big difference here is that I think that what we’re doing is neither stupid nor futile. And we’re doing it in response to something dead serious.
Still, enjoy while you can.
