I Confess…

Tweet [1]

… 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 [2] the weight of the punitive burdens he imposes on Americans who buy imports – Steve Bannon declares [3] that “we’re in an economic war with China” – Fareed Zakaria wants [4] to “bring us together as a nation” by conscripting young Americans.

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