    What is not mentioned and is worth 10 negative passes is the dreads. Sarcasm aside interesting discussion but I still think that Beckerman’s negatives outweigh his positives.

    “I still think that Beckerman’s negatives outweigh his positives.”

    Hard to disagree with that. Laura definitely makes the case for why he’s not as terrible as everyone seems to think—which definitely needed saying—but it’s hard to make the case that he should start. Mostly because of those dreads.
