Before the Presidential election I was a confirmed news junkie, absorbing as much information I could from all available sources. I spent more than three hours a day in that pursuit.
Over the past several months I have become more and more a news recluse. I drop in on a television news station from time to time (no more than once a day) only to be certain that there is no sign of terror in the newscaster’s eyes or the background noise of approaching hoofbeats.
Once reassured, I put my head back in the sand.
I turn 92 in a few months. I’m too old for the sort of nonsense going on in our nation’s capital.
