Mac or PC?: Mac (does it have Excel?)
Louisiana or Tabasco? Louisiana
Admittedly this list is light hearted, but the broader point is more serious.
We all fall into a series of classification buckets beyond Republican and Democrat. Also, sometimes these classifications are falsely presented to us as binary. For example, it is not as if when I go to a restaurant and they only have Tabasco sauce I don’t gladly take it, I like Tabasco as well. The broader point is that we compromise all the time. In my mind, there is a level of political healing that will be required to start having honest constructive discussions on forward looking challenges. A first step may be understanding that as people our labels are diverse, overlapping, and in most cases not binary.
