Give it five minutes

I was busy quoting each and every line of this short piece, and it occurred to me that I might simply link to it and say that every line is worth reading, digesting and giving a little bit more time than one might originally intend to.

But there is another choice. Objections but no astute interjections. Skipping over more important parts, its easy to identify reactions to abstracts and headlines. Created by the editors of eyeballs, hiking on trails of misinformation: snippets from summaries of synopses. Spending inordinate amounts of time on irrelevant puzzles with pieces kept away consciously. Less intellectually challenging, more about damage control.

The choice about whether five minutes should cost us as much. Easy.
