Most People You Meet Are Decent and Normal. But Watch the News and You’d Think We Were All Nuts and Nasty.

From a post on headlined “1 big thing: You’re not nuts”:

  • Why it matters: The rising power and prominence of the nation’s loudest, meanest voices obscures what most of us personally experience: Most people are sane and generous — and too busy to tweet.
