It’s a Whole New Year

What a way to start the year! The firehose of NooZ, real and fake has already started. If we are going to survive this year, we need to do a little editing about how much of the firehose we allow to blast us in the ears.

First of all, obviously ZooNooZ needs to stay on your radar of what you should listen to. Then, you should subscribe To Joyce Vance‘s Substack Newsletter, along with Heather Cox Richardson. Add Jay Kuo for a little more in depth analysis. For a sweary look at the Nooz, you can’t do better than Jeff Tiedrich. You can find all of them on the Substack website or app, if you are someone who likes apps. You can find me there too! I’ve been doing a Year in Review there, and will be doing that for a few more weeks!

You can listen and watch a little bit of main stream news, but take it all with a grain of salt and don’t over do it. A little bit goes a long way!

Here are the things I won’t be paying (much) attention to: The GOP primary, for starters. I mean, that’s not something I’ll be voting in. I guess if you’re a Republican that’s something you probably should pay attention to (although what are you doing HERE if you’re a Republican?) But since I won’t be voting for any of those people, my attention can be minimal.

There are a few other things that I need to draw back from, both because I can’t do anything about them, or they are conditions that are so complex and so long running, I don’t have the knowledge or understanding to make any meaningful contribution.

In other NooZ, my birthday Season is now officially over.

Hang on tight and buckle up, folks! It’s gonna be a hell of a year!

Be the Bear!

    I still think the Mommy Mei/Josie ticket is our best Pandyland choice. Maybe with Ping as Secretary of State.

    Excellent advice! Guess what?!? I already read all those people. I figure Jeff Tiedrich says what I want to say! Reading him just kind of crept up on me because he says what I want to say. Jay Kuo is wonderful! I read him and Joyce Vance to keep all things legal straight in my head. I usually start with Heather Cox Richardson because I wish I could be her student. And, of course, I start with ZooNoos! Where would I be without Bob T and Mehitibel ?
    Buckle up! And I think you are right about Republican rotgut. I want them voted out of office. And I want some of them in jail for high crimes and misdemeanors!
    Thanks for your insight and perspective on this. Sometimes I feel like one of Joyce’s chickens, but I do not know what I am doing! Thank goodness for your ‘toons!
