In the News Today—Wea’ve Written Weekly

Must we live in this moment?

John Oliver is right about Subway.

Walmart removes Juneteenth ice cream.

The government hoards billions of pounds of cheese.

Monkeypox Marxism makes its move.

Ukrainian boxing champion killed on the front line.

Russian forces expand their assault.

Must we live in this moment?

  1. This is fabulous! And I got my current events lesson, too. I don’t read the newspapers and watch as little news as possible; it’s all depressing BS anyway. I stay informed by the internet and my husband who watches quite a bit of news and tells me all I need to know over dinner. That’s good enough for me. I like this – The Poetic Cliff Notes of News. 🗞 📰
