Those Editorial Meetings When I Was Glad There Was No Seat Available For Me

"Events are turning me into a radical skeptic. I no longer believe what I read,...The fact is that almost the entirety of what one reads in the paper or on the web is speculation. The writer isn't telling you what happened, he is offering an interpretation of what happened, or offering a projection of the future...the interpretations of current events, and prophesies of future ones, are merely the products of groupthink or dogma or emotions or wish-casting,...There was a time when newspapers printed astrology columns. They no longer need to. The pseudoscience is on the front page."

Well, it's so nice not to be alone, at last.

Now how do we get out of it?
