Stephen Randall, in the Los Angeles Times

"We live in an era in which it is important to have opinions. Not necessarily smart or original ones;
almost any opinion will do as long as it's forcefully expressed. We post them on Facebook; we
tweet them; we express them in comments on Huffington Post. It wasn't that long ago that opinions
were something carefully considered and weighed, so that they'd stand the test of time and
reflect well on the author. Thinkers were like gourmet chefs laboring over an elaborate meal they
wanted to be perfect. But today, opinions are like Big Macs - thrown together hastily, served by
the billions, and not very good for you."

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes
Jack Handey
