Say it To My Face

Last night on Jimmy Fallon, Yankees fans were invited to boo a cardboard cutout of Robinson Cano (a great player who recently departed for Seattle). Then, when they turned around, they saw the real Robinson Cano. Needless to say, the booing stopped. This is funny. But it also made me think of the Internet where we gladly trash others as if they were little more than cardboard cutouts. (And when we see them in real life, we generally stare quietly at our phones so we can be back on the Internet.)
