My name is John and as my nick describes, I’m a former wire service and newspaper reporter and editor who then moved on to Corp comms in the airline industry (no snarky complaints, please). I feel blessed that I made it across the retirement finish line but I worry for my kids and all the rest of you younger folks about what kind of world this collection of fucked up, selfish, craven politicians will leave for you. As a lifelong news junkie, I love this site. I am frightened, appalled, fucking outraged, gobsmacked and frequently exhausted by the steady stream of WTF developments Matt passes along. I am glad to be in a community that shares my outlook. Thank you, Matt, and all the rest of you for your interest and energy.
