What was the Rally to Restore Sanity about? Why was it important?
It isn’t that we shouldn’t hold strong values and opinions. It is that those values and opinions ought to be based in fact and reported to others with civility. It isn’t that we should compromise those values and opinions. It is that we have to live in a world where actual compromise is necessary to survive. It is that we have hair dressers and family members and friends and coworkers who are going to disagree with us, sometimes vehemently and sometimes on a lot of different topics, and we have to recognize that they are human and probably not evil. We have to recognize that just like we don’t want to hurt the country, they probably don’t want to either. -Art at the Auction
