The news cycle for the past few months has been a cycle of closures, indefinite closures, re-openings, & re-closures.

Unfortunately, I’ve found that many “readers” on both Facebook and Twitter refuse to actually click on the stories and read them. This modern trend of just reading headlines and forming deep opinions [...]
