Our author responds: While I appreciate you taking the time to read and respond to the post, cherry-picking one line and professing that to be the sole theme is not helpful to discourse. The post very clearly defined that portion of mass media, namely, the sensationalism of “being silly,” that is partly to blame. If you disagree, that’s fantastic. I would hope that not everyone agrees with me. Disagreement and discussion are how solutions get reached. However, let’s make sure we reference the true intent of the argument in support of our positions.
