» Escape Artist - 16-11-17 13:43 -- So long as there those among us who cannot keep their beliefs to themselves, who don't care enough about whether or not their beliefs are true, so long as there are those who shun reality in favor of their fantasy, then there is no hope for the future of humankind.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-17 13:30 -- I want to be encouraging.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-17 13:28 -- you're doing better than me then
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-17 13:16 -- I'm tired of sticking my fingers in my ears as other people stick their foots in their mouth. I've gotten rid of my social media but I feel a greater need now more than ever to put my opinion out in the ether.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-17 13:16 -- If you're worried about how well it reads, there are plenty of people here who can help edit and revise it. Write something and make it a forum post first, get feedback, edit it, then submit it
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-17 13:15 -- My point is that writing about the things that are frustrating you may help (it's helping me, I think) and getting it published for people outside of your closest confidants to read is also satisfying.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-17 13:14 -- Well, things like letters to the editor don't need to be super long, the shorter the better in fact. If you come across a news piece that you want to respond to, respond via letter to the editor.
