Extreme views

I have to chuckle whenever I read in a newspaper or magazine, or hear on TV or radio, about someone appearing to have “extreme view.” As if that was inherently a bad thing. Really? Jesus of Nazareth had extreme views. George Washington had extreme views. Abraham Lincoln had extreme views. Susan B. Anthony had extreme views. Martin Luther King, Jr. had extreme views. Muhammad Ali had extreme views. Hell, I have extreme views. It’s nice to be in good company. But I suppose it depends on where you’re sitting and when.
