December 2019 . . . .
Its that time of year again, where everything needs to be put into perspective. When we give awards for things we like. That mysterious grading of things we dont.
We are a culture of observation as much as participation. We look, comment and criticize. We review. Unfortunately, in my opinion (yes, I see the hypocrisy in this sentence), one of those views that we are most satisfied with is rank. The quantification of stuff. Side-by-side comparison. Polls. Standings. Whos number one? Which Bachelor doesnt make the grade, wont receive a rose, a kiss, a date, or any other metaphorical prize? Whos the GOAT? which is an ironic acronym if ever there was one.
