Within a few days I heard Terry Gross explain golden showers on NPR and seen The New Yorker print "penisfuckermcgee." Make of that what you will. I sure as fuck don't know what to think.

I sort of miss the old, naive Terry Gross who once asked Rick Rubin if the song "Hurt" was about cutting yourself. Pining for the good old George W Bush days when lions still killed lambs, but then the lions didn't pretend like they had never heard of lambs, and anyone who claims that they like the taste of lambs is a very bad person and is colluding with Russia and the liberal media to make up stories about how much lions like the taste of lambs. Many people don't know this, but lions are actually vegetarians.

A golden era where newscasters didn't have to parse the seven dirty words to determine if they apply when presidential candidates say them?

Whether the president using the term "shithole" made the term "shithole" acceptable on the 5 o'clock news?

When Sean Hannity had nothing more important to rag about than mustard?

When "Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin and Kid Rock" was something in Cards Against Humanity, not CNN?

Got a friend. He mixed Omarosa on the Apprentice and mixed her again on Big Brother. In between she was the "Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison at the White House."

If I begin to catalog the things that I miss I shall never finish.

No one has asked me to board a handbasket just yet, but maybe I'll get an early check-in email closer to the date . . .
