and now, the evening news

Watching the news. One of the two items dominating the news is a world crisis that seems like it could just possibly trigger a third world war. The other one is a celebrity's murder trial, with what seems to me like large portions of misogyny and other unpleasant reflections on our media culture (which seems to have more sympathy for the accused than for the victim) -but, compared to the former, rather a minor sideshow. Things are afoot that could change the world, perhaps not for the better.
