I wish the Trib editorial board would use the "Darts and Flowers", "Thumbs-Up-Thumbs-Down" column to actually comment on real issues and not be afraid to stake out an independent-minded position when warranted. Instead it tends to be more just a place to thank people for good deeds, which is also a nice thing and completely welcome, but I'd put it in a separate column. Perhaps, "Flowers and Flowers"?

Thumbs Up to people who help old ladies across the street! Thumbs Down to the drivers who accelerate when they see them crossing!
Darts to the holocaust! Flowers to the American Revolution!
Thumbs up to church picnics with apple pie! Thumbs down to the ebola virus!

I agree with this particular thumb, and I think that's just the problem- Everyone else does too unless they have some sort of wrist disorder that makes their thumb always point down.
