Was reading an article by Peter Wehner and he used my title phrase.
The article itself is well worth the read, but I’ll leave the details aside.
But what a tasty metaphor.
It’s rare, though, that we have more than a trickle of facts when making a decision or determining a point of view. And we all have to deal with the filter of our biases, and the general confusion twixt opinion and fact.
Still, there are those for whom an ‘avalanche of facts’ can only result in a sort of a logical nervous breakdown, so any effort to create an avalanche is wasted.
