It’s been a rough week. But many submitted insightful and fitting quotes and original captions! Thanks to everyone who participated. Your thoughtful comments made it another tough choice this week. That said…
Congratulations to Mathijs Demper! He gave us a great quote that sums up not only this piece, but the contemporary political landscape and all the fear and hate running rampant.
This week, too, we’d like to acknowledge Noah Larsson and Daniël Klunder as runners-up.
