Oh, Man

I heard the news today, oh, man

“When I was a child, people simply looked about them and were moderately happy; today they peer beyond the seven seas, bury themselves waist-deep in tidings, and by and large what they see and hear makes them unutterably sad.”
—E.B. White (1899-1985),
author and wise man, 1938
