The View from a Drawbridge

The random musings of a bridgetender with entirely too much time on her hands.

I spend a great deal of time on this blog discussing unanswered questions. That’s probably because they drive me nuts. I prefer having answers. Doesn’t everybody?

Apparently that’s the case for the majority of us, because in this past decade, I’ve seen more and more people grabbing hold of answers with both hands, in seeming fits of desperation. They don’t wish to question those answers one little bit, no matter how absurd those answers seem to be to those with even a modicum of critical thinking skills.

Beware the unquestioned answers, dear reader. Eschew the conspiracy theories. Reject anti-science. Avoid liars and all manner of tellers of tall tales. If it seems weird, question it. If it’s just a bit too pat, delve deeper. Listen to more than one source for your information. And don’t let one of those sources be Fox News. If it’s supposed to be a huge secret, wonder why the person telling you knows. If you’re told that they’ve just appointed RuPaul’s housecat to be the Minister of Justice in North Korea, it’s probably too good to be true. Don’t just blindly follow authority. Use your noggin.

We have brains because they’re meant to be used. Now is not the time to get lazy. Educate yourself. And for heaven’s sake, vote.
