I to you proposing am this truncated slab of selfie wandering about the cradle of democracy commenting on the craters of democracy. Of the dynamic duo of The Duran I tilt towards Chistoforou over Mercouris simply because Mercouris’ accent and inflection irritate the hell out of me. And then there’s The Duran’s rollicking sidekick, Gonzalo Lira, who drops in from house arrest every day or so in the same damn hat and t-shirt.
All of which is to say that I do try to play “Both Sides Now” but all I really think is that I hate this war more than life itself.
(And don’t even ask me about my Telegram subscriptions; so brutal and sad and visceral I can’t open them without fear and trembling.)
