Today’s WORD on Journalism
Afflicting the comfortable since 1995
Monday, December 12, 2015
You know, I have always checked out of the WORD when classes are over for Christmas Break. And even though I am retired, and really have no actual excuses, my wife reminds me that I should take some time off. She is trying to save me from a heart attack. God love her. In this time of Trumpification and other obscenities that raise my blood pressure, I think she has a good point.
So I have sent the WORD off to St. Mumbles Home for the Terminally Verbose and Insanely Fixated on Politics for the “holidays.” We’ll be back and renewed in January.
Or, you know, don’t hold your breath.
