Opinions

Opinions are not stories. We should not compete to see who can contrive the most unusual, the most entertaining, or the most comforting opinions, or try to adopt the most popular, the most familiar, the "best-selling." Opinion is a poor substitute for truth; it is what we resort to when we don't know the facts. Facts are not subject to opinion (though interpretation of facts may be, at times). Anyone can "make shit up"—but what's the point? That's what we have fiction writers for.
