So is America fiddling while D.C. burns?

Editor, Ceres Courier,

The U.S. faces an existential crisis as Donald Trump crosses the Hudson to report for arraignment. Meanwhile, the New York Times announces “How to nail that ‘not a tourist’ look,” and the Chicago Tribune reports a Chicago native was a part of the team that took down the Nashville school shooter.

So, America is fiddling while D.C. burns, right?

Bloomberg’s daily dish mentions that 1989 was the year Taylor Swift was born, Nintendo released Game Boy, and the first episode of Simpsons aired. Okay, so we started fiddling with ourselves a long time ago and clearly nobody anywhere is going to stop doing it long enough to save the country.
