Symone D. Sanders @SymoneDSanders

That’s a nice gesture from Digby.

What’s the alternative to spoon feeding? I dunno, maybe inform curious people that they can easily look some information up on the, you know, Internets? And then apply a healthy dose of critical thinking. That seems like a good place to start. Unless they want to be spoon fed.

That was in reference to a classic from David Sedaris in 2008.

At this point, given the objective choices, if they’re not there they never will be, nor were they ever going to be.
