You guys, esp. Mr. Clark, of course, remind me of sports newsmen - endless
speculation about the future - the reason I don't watch ESPN even though I
like a couple of sports. And the reason I don't watch TV at all except for
golf and tennis. Even there I just watch the sports - mostly on mute.
There was a book of long ago, say 70s, called I'm OK, You're OK. One of
the chapters was a game (or maybe the book was Games People Play - I dunno)
called Uproar. Described as played by married couples, back when there was
a lot of that sort of thing, the couple took turns at saying or doing
something outrageous, and that escalated sometimes until violence
occurred. It seems to me that the media plays it. We hear or read of
something outrageous and everyone has to put their two cents in, for and
DT must feel like a god - a couple of Tweets and worldwide uproar follows.
He must be laughing his ass off.
