Why Comments Matter

Recently on Twitter, I got in an argument with a couple of well-established anti-comment types.

The Trapper Keeper is back, but it carries tablets instead of homework

Ask anyone who progressed through middle and high school during the ’80s and ’90s how they kept heaps of schoolwork organized, and “Trapper Keeper’ is the answer you’ll hear.
