A good critic doesn't only criticize. They inform people. There are critics for just about everything; every profession, every activity. They tell us, as consumers, what we need to know, so we can make an educated decision, whether that is choosing the right movie, the right cereal, the right microwave so we can cook our salmonella pot pies, and even up to the right doctor to see for our surgeries. A critic can be used for many things, especially a skillful one. Somebody has to be the one to decide who or what is the best or who/what doesn't quite fulfill their responsibilities. As citizens, we can be thankful for the skilled critics, because without them we wouldn't get a fair judgment on our products. We can especially be thankful for them if we are the ones being judged.
