I rarely open Facebook. At best, it’s boring and banal. At worst it’s ugly and dangerous.
I don’t have a Twitter account. I’m too old to tweet. I’ll leave that to the birds – and bird brains like Donald Trump.
It’s not that I don’t want to keep up with friends and family. But I have an email account. And a telephone.
I really don’t need to be told I looked handsome a half-century ago. We all looked great back then. And the older we get the better we used to look.
I know I don’t look handsome now, so there’s no point in being reassured to the contrary.
Of course, that’s all harmless and I know my friends and relatives mean well. So that’s not the reason I shun Facebook and all the other “social media” platforms.
It’s the politics.
So much offensive trash gets circulated. And there’s no point in responding to it.
