Sunday Sentence

In which I participate in David Abrams’s “Sunday Sentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

I think a lot about the possibility that someone who holds another view could read my column and at least have second thoughts about what they are thinking, or look at a question from a slightly different angle, even if I don’t persuade them.
