When Lester Holt comes on the air, the first words out of his mouth are “Breaking News…”.

Every day is breaking. No wonder we can’t stop watching.

The bed sheets have that tired feeling that happens after a weekend of rest. Sunday mornings the last of it is ruined – spill a little coffee, smear some ink, ruffle some newsprint in with the bedding.

The news, I try to keep it to Sundays only. If it shows up in print, my deep-dives are a little more coordinated. If I want to get stuck on a story or find out more about it, then I have to keep a whole section around to check in throughout the week.

Yes, I realize how old this makes me seem. The internet moves too fast for most of us anyway. Fast information is slow education. Clicking on news stories from your friend’s Facebook feed guaranteesĀ a 100% editorial tilt long before you’ve even read the headline.

Writing would be great if it weren’t the only thing I knew how to do.

I publish as much as I can, you’ll just have to wait for the rest.
