Weekend worriers (political)

https://i0.wp.com/4vector.com/i/free-vector-angry-at-the-news-clip-art_107358_Angry_At_The_News_clip_art_hight.pngIf you think reading a newspaper during the week is bad (assuming that you actually read a newspaper, that is), the Sunday section is even worse. At least it is for The New York Times.

Now I have to admit, prior to this election cycle, I probably wasn’t the most informed citizen in the world. But since November, unless you have your head in the sand, it’s impossible not to be involved unless you voted for Trump and are just content to sit back, put up your feet, and gloat over the pain of the bleeding-heart liberals.

Every day there’s another op-ed commenting on the latest Executive Order or GOP move  that threatens the American way of life, if you believe immigrants helped build the United States or that public education is important or that people who aren’t qualified to run a cabinet post shouldn’t, regardless of how rich they are or how successful they might be in a totally unrelated field.

Sundays are worse because you have a whole section devoted to reviewing the week. So that’s more opinion pieces to sift through, almost all of which lead to outrage and high blood pressure. It’s exhausting.
