Neil deGrasse Tyson has a revised campaign slogan for the presidential race.
Forget #MAGA. Think #MASA.
I do take issue with that last word. “Again”? Just as progressives want to know from Donald Trump when, exactly, we used to be great, I’d love to hear from Tyson when we used to be smart. As far as I can remember, we’ve always been a country in which the ignorant and apathetic outnumbered the intelligent and passionate.
Let’s go with making America smart, period. Or making America think. Or just making America a little less dumb than yesterday.
If this election tells us anything, it’s that we have a long way to go no matter which option we choose.
