PEOPLE ARE SAYING 2016 was a miserable, maggot rot of a year. With the lies, the hacks, the deaths, the ugliness — but who needs it? Reality is OUT. Why have “two Americas” when we each have our own personal Americas, handcrafted by clicks. Block the offensive, block the politically correct, block your mom! Just don’t turn your screens off or you’ll miss the tattered threads of what still unites us: arguing about trivial yet life-or-death matters like what’s IN and what’s OUT.
