This afternoon I’m giving a friend a shiatsu for sciatica & needed to clean the house. Anyone with dogs (or for that matter kids) knows why that is necessary even if you’re not a habitual slob. So mindlessly I left the morning news on while I cleaned & was mesmerized that for at least four hours (yes, it did take me that long to clean thoroughly) news commentators spoke of nothing but speculations about what the orange halfwit in the White House will say at his State of the Union address on Tuesday. Not one word, nary a peep about any of the several US wars, military occupations, the Rohingya genocide, the millions of refugees.
