The worst of times

I feel better if I don’t watch the so-called news. To be sure the media loves the political circus led by Ringmaster Donald Trump. I often wonder what the cable stations would offer if the Trump circus was not around? Perhaps they would report on the climate disaster that is clearly underway and threatens millions of lives? Trump is a gift from heaven for these calculating disgusting cretins. I for one have been watching lots of MASH reruns. An absolutely brilliant series. And of course, the Golden Girls always prompt a comforting laugh. Call it a form of escapism and it probably is just that!! But I have to confess that the current political situation in the United States is now comparable to third world regimes. Personalities over policy. The prospect of a Biden-Trump rematch is almost surreal. Indeed these are the worst of times.
