Usually when you get a hat like this, they give you a bowl of soup with it:
If you come here often, you've noticed that I spend a lot of time writing about nothing. I suppose I could come up with more Topical and Incendiary stuff to write about; after all, we swim in the Twitter fishbowl, and there's always somebody upset 'bout somethin'. Twitter's where the streetfights happen, then blogs prepare for the siege. Yesterday it was Amazon. Today it was something else. Somebody was outraged about something. Perhaps it was something important. How important, in the Great Grand Scheme of Things, is the question. When the Daily Dramas unfold, when people don their white hats, rally the troops, and call out the villains, I'm finding myself less inclined to unsnap the holster and remove the safety, and more inclined to simply shrug.
Because no matter how many people read your blog, it's a big old world, and most people still don't. Perspective: that post I wrote that 75 people commented on? 6,697,254,220 people didn't.
(FULL DISCLOSURE: I got that t-shirt for free. Perks of being a Featured Contributor. The hat I paid for.)
