I Confess…

… that some mornings I wake up and encounter headlines and news that make me want to retire and ignore the world – to devote my time to novels and music and wine, to follow only sports, and to ignore policy, politicians, and the punditry.

This morning is one such morning. Trump has increased the weight of the punitive burdens he imposes on Americans who buy imports – Steve Bannon declares that “we’re in an economic war with China” – Fareed Zakaria wants to “bring us together as a nation” by conscripting young Americans.

It’s all so discouraging, some mornings especially so.
