OK, time for me to pull the plug on my social media self as I enter the hermit phase of my life. Look for me in a cave in Tibet (or a diner in Virginia that has a senior citizen discount).

I leave you with a photo of two of our foster kittens who have clearly attained enlightenment.

Don’t forget to save democracy this fall! Please!

See ya.

I’m amazed this exists. Among the papers of my late friend, CBS News Correspondent Richard C. Hottelet, his script for D-Day, June 6, 1944. He flew over the invasion beaches as the first wave landed. Here is the first page of his script and the audio of the broadcast he made to American listeners:

Just FYI, I’m retiring from social media this weekend and deleting my accounts.

For those who want to curate their own news, I recommend downloading the AP app to start. It’s getting clogged with ads, alas, but is still a valuable service.

I check the BBC app regularly. I no longer subscribe to The Washington Post or The NY Times (I won’t support some of their opinion writers) but I do check both.

“Good night and good luck!”

“For the last eight years or so, one thing has become quite clear: the media has been effectively unable to deal with Donald Trump and Trumpism. He is unique to our political system. He has no shame, is willing to lie without concern, convince himself that his lies are true, and will stop at nothing to win, including fomenting violence and direct attempts to overturn an election.”
