I’ve decided I no longer wish to use the word “hate.” It’s too strong of a negative sentiment, and the fact is I don’t really hate anyone (I don’t even truly hate the Koch Brothers, and they’re as evil as evil gets). And saying I hate a thing, like garlic for example, is just ridiculous. I dislike the effect that garlic has on my gastrointestinal tract, but I don’t HATE it. Please. So from now on, if you see me using that particular word, feel free to call me on it.
