A Short List of Comments For the Day

Non-spoiler alert for anyone unlucky enough to be keeping up with the U.S. “Downton Abbey” schedule instead of the UK one: everyone and everything ends well. The Christmas special which also serves as the series finale was simply as heart-felt as any hour or so of television could ever be.

“Hand of God” on Amazon is a spectacular tv show. Ron Perlman’s performance was so great it prompted me to start “Sons of Anarchy,” which I’ve ignored all these years.

When someone knocks, I instead ask “Who isn’t it?” In this way, when they respond incorrectly, I don’t have to open the door.

Regarding the oft-stated desire to be able to avoid seeing undesirable posts on Facebook: if people are being honest what they really are saying is they don’t wish to see posts that they disagree with no matter how heartfelt the content or how personal the message. It is a subtle and constant reminder that we might be quite wrong about something: or worse – that logic and critical thinking aren’t as important as we fool ourselves into believing. 

Learning occurs only when you replace opinion or ignorance with another truth. Some of us share only things that are meaningful, personal or with our own twist to it. We are doing it right. Those with the dullest ax to grind tend to also be the ones with both the tendency to repost what another person has said or made and display a resistance to considering that other opinions might have a toehold on truth. Facebook is just a mirror or window, depending on how you see your role in using it to enrich your life. It can be both road and roadblock, just as your own real relationships work in life.
