Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter et al diluted the realtime pool.
Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people retweeting the decades old picture of that cat with the lime on its head using bit.ly links makes me long for a 'Shut up' button — I figured why not make a blog?

It’s easy to be a news anchor these days. Invite people on the show and then yell at them until the interview slot runs out. That’s the perfect way to fuel critical debate.

I’m not going to apologise for this coronavirus post. It’s likely to piss you off. That’s the point. Check you’re wearing your big trousers then dive in if you think you can handle it.
