I heard there was some kind of mess on Facebook about this. Looks like much to do about nothing. The fact that neither of the parties in charge of this home improvement project gave any thought to the optics involved is sad enough, but the fact that I even feel the need to mention it is sadder still. A sad reflection on a few handfuls of adults hurling insults across the internet like a bunch of six-year-olds in a playground disagreement.
The worst anyone in this picture is guilty of is bad optics, as in failure to consider how the pack of internet reactionaries down the street, around the corner, or across the highway would react to any suggestion of anyone doing anything they ought not to do or should’ve done differently. Forward is never backward. We’re better than any of this.
