A Day Without You Know Who

It is 6:00 a.m. and normally I would be sitting on my couch channel surfing between MSNBC, CNN, and FOX, watching the latest so-called news, mostly speculation, about you know who (YKW).  I don’t recommend starting your day that way, as I’m usually left with a slight nausea, and feeling in desperate need for a spark of enthusiasm to meet the rest of the day.

While my goal with this blog is to shed a little light to dispel here and there the Gotham-like miasma that YKW cloaks the truth with by the hour, I can’t help but feel I’m just another pawn in his game.  I am one of the many who spend way to much time focused upon him.  And in writing this blog I am pushing others to do the same.  All just what he wants.  It is a conundrum.

This came to mind when I sent a friend/blog-reader a web site which tracks the YKW roller coaster ride daily.  His name is John and his wife Deb.  While he thought the site could be useful, he added:  “Deb and I are trying to persuade each other to spend less time watching cable news because you just get spun around faster and faster into the vortex, and you end up knowing only what you knew before the dizzying spin”. 

In other words, thanks but no thanks for more about YKW.

I can hear you, man.  My excuse is I’m addicted.

But I still haven’t turned on cable news and hope not to, while referring to the oversized boy who would-be king as YKW adds some distance, too.  If his name comes up later in the day it won’t come out of my mouth.  And I’ll keep mum if others talk about him.  Or at least try to.

It is only one day, but you know how it is with us addicts.  We take it one day at a time.
