    So at some point during 2018, normal, non-Beltway-dwelling Americans simply stopped paying attention to current events. Every now and then we’d tune in to a cable-TV news show see what kinds of issues our nation’s elite political/media class was grappling with, and we’d see a headline like PORN STAR STORMY DANIELS: TRUMP DIDN’T USE A CONDOM.
    WORD.

    Being retired, I actually read the entire piece. Best satire since Catch 22, which I finally gave up on, about 50 pages from the conclusion. I went back and tried again, several times, but never even equaled my first effort at finishing it. I still enjoyed the best parts as much as the first time, but came to the conclusion that once you have your gotten your 'fill' of absurdity, it's absurd to continue.

    But I was much younger, then, and I cut my teeth on Mad Magazine.
