You know, this seems like an absolutely spectacular idea:
And good advice for our country, isn’t it? After all the Sturm und Drang of the past few weeks our country would benefit from an absence of sound. Next week we mark Thanksgiving. Today, in anticipation, and after our fractious election, we could declare National Settle Down Week. National Be Still Week. Or National Give It a Rest Week.
The Great American Ssssshhhhhhhh-Out.
I can’t even articulate how appealing this sounds. You know what? All those problems, worries, injustices, scandals, evil Republicans, evil Democrats, lies, damned lies, and statistics will be there to deal with after Thanksgiving. But maybe just for a week, we could all calm down and find something else to talk about?
I don’t really see our nation’s pundits, talking heads, or bloggers taking this advice. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if the din subsided just enough that we could hear our own prayers of thanksgiving this week?
