IN THE WEEDS....2/11/23

In yesterday's blog, I got caught up in trying to make sense of a committee hearing in Washington, the intentions of its leaders, and the alleged grandstanding of the politicians involved. That's what elected officials do - the system is so broken that they feel compelled to create video soundbites that will reverberate through Twitter by disparaging the other side with innuendo and condescension. In many cases they certainly deserve it, but is that how we want Washington to work? Where's the kindness?

And do you know why it works that way? Because we as consumers of this bullshit are similarly broken and marketing agencies know this. The more outrageous the headline, the more compelled people are to click on it and react. Don't get me wrong - I love a good train wreck now and then, and have been chasing political ambulances for years, and probably will continue to do so, but I'm realizing more and more that it's a colossal waste of time.

I'm going to try to be better....
