Quick Hits 29

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

A major star whose touch is gold and pulls you in. You love their music or their movies or their athletic accomplishments. Then major scandal erupts painting them as an absolute beast who has hidden a long-standing pattern of criminal and unethical behavior. Will you still buy their albums, go to their premiers, or unabashedly root for them and their teams?

What do you think?
