I think at times this medium skews attention to that which furthers acrimonious debate than anything truly useful or important. While we focus on how far we can take the Foley thing (including David Brooks equating Foley’s actions with a character from a play), gun shots are heard along the Korean border, and North Korea prepares for a nuclear bomb test. How to explain the lack of interest? It isn’t Google, it doesn’t sell, and one won’t get acclaim for such plain writing as, “this really scares me”, but this really scares me.
