A mixture of cynicism, sarcasm, righteous outrage and humor
New year, new administration, new endeavors. Welcome to the premier issue of “So That Happened.” Because what else do you do when you can’t work and you you really don’t want to go out into a crazy, mixed up, physically and mentally ill world? You scour the news and social media, looking for some meaning and purpose to your life. What you find there is maddening and ofttimes, wrought with the belly laughs that only come about when you see the absurdity in what others think is serious business.
As it is that news travels fast and ridiculousness even faster, who knows how frequently issues will drop. Could be daily, if all hell breaks loose. Or they could post 2, 3 times a week. After all, the news cycle runs 24 hours a day and so does the stupidity that humankind is prone to. We are in a new era where we won’t be waking up to “Oh God, what did he tweet while he was trying to shit out all that fast food this time?”
We are beginning to return to normalcy. And normalcy means, “same shilling for oligarchs, same systemic racism, same unequal balance of economic power. Only not so much in your face with it.”
