Two sides

Today’s editorial page said it all for me. Roitman’s “Repairing the fabric of American democracy” asked how we feel about the political other side and asked if we think they’re the enemy. Then I read Villiani’s “This is a public health matter” which calls for mandatory mask wearing. And finally, Tim Grant’s God-driven claim that the left is going to send us all to hell, this time because of vaccinations (or not) for children.

Bottom line, there usually are two sides to every story. The good news is that most Americans are willing to listen to each. Avoid the sanctimoniousness of the fringes.
