One of my chess buddies tells me he has a relative who has been diagnosed with clinical depression. The doctor has prescribed for her… no news! She is to steer clear of the news, whether on TV, radio, in newspapers or magazines, or in the Internet. For the sake of her mental health, she is to shun the news.
Makes sense to me!
My wife takes these surveys from You.Gov. The other day she had one whose last question was, “Do you feel overwhelmed by the news?” Uh… yes! She wished it was an essay question so she could unburden herself.
Is it just us, just these few people who are being driven crackers by the nooze? Or are there, like, tens of millions of us? It’s sort of my job to report some of it to you, no matter how revolting it is. And we do need to keep abreast of what the Enemy is doing, and his slaves, and what we’re up against.
Y’know what we could do? We could re-elect Donald Trump by a landslide next year… and really make ’em howl.
