This Is a Good Thing? ¬.¬

So on the way home I'm flipping channels on the radio looking for something that doesn't suck [1] and on NPR I hear whassername the announcer saying in her most self-important voice, "Coverage of the Democratic National Convention is prompting political discussions among co-workers and even among families!" like this was the greatest thing in the world.

There's a reason "never talk about religion or politics" is one of the most commonly repeated social lessons among polite society. Frankly, I think the world would be a better place if we could prompt a little political SHUT UP.

Especially among co-workers and even among families.

[1] A futile exercise in the D.C. market, I know, but it's late and I wasn't thinking properly.
