Thank goodness for social media or I would have a difficult time coming up with topics to write about each week. I will be sitting at my laptop texting people for ideas and then someone will either post something outrageous or ridiculous and then the 500 words flow easily. My new interest, (I wrote a little bit about it last week), is how angry many people are when posting or replying to people’s comments.
A civic minded Broad Channel resident kindly asked people to slow down when traveling through their small town and I could not believe the negative comments people posted in response to his simple request. The posts were mean and some became even racist. As I tried to read the thread, it was obvious that some posts were actually deleted
