I hate to be the bearer of bad news, friends, but that’s what columnists do. The bad news must be borne. That’s why it has a bearer, if you get my drift.

So I’ll break it to you straight up. This mega-political year of 2019 will swamp us with rhetoric, propaganda, fake news and outright lies for many months to come.

We are facing a painful period and political pain is not easily relieved. Drugs hardly help. The pain will go on like a root canal for the mind for a year and beyond. Short of cave dwelling, there’s no dodging it.
