Tangled thoughts

Yesterday I read a piece in the The New York Times online, that really has my mind in a tangle. I can't decide how I feel about it. So, I'm contemplating writing something about it, maybe a short essay, as a way to sort things out.

The thing is, I can't decide where to post it. Here? I don't think so. It's a controversial topic, and while I'm not trying to avoid that here, this just doesn't seem like the venue. 

And it seems to me that writing this will further blur any lines that I've attempted to use to delineate my various different writing activities. When I was younger, I always tried very hard to color inside the lines perfectly. Now I don't like lines. 

Is that the wisdom or the folly that comes with age?
