Performing a Needed Service

Let's pause for a moment and offer a thanks to the folks behind the website and network "Stop Click Bait." Theirs is a work of great importance.

Clickbait, if you are not familiar with it, is the kind of "You'll never guess" headline about some celebrity, oddity or weird event that draws a reader to click on it and generate ad revenue for the company that posted it. Usually, the answer is mundane and disappointing.

Sort of like the 2016 presidential campaign.
