What are you tempted to bash?
May 5, 2017

Have you noticed what I’ve noticed since the election? Everyone, it seems, is an expert on foreign policy. The other night, scrolling through Twitter, I saw a gal weighing in on Syria with such confidence it caught me by surprise.

“What can she possibly know about Syria?” I wondered. “How did she go from being an expert on (omitting a clue to her identity, here) to being an expert on that? Seemingly overnight?”

I almost mentioned it to Darrell. Then I caught myself. Which is worse? Weighing in on Syria when you don’t have a degree in foreign policy? Or spending time questioning how someone spends hers?

Maybe this person is more accomplished than I realized.

It’s possible.
