    Bill, It is discouraging to live in an age of “alternative facts”. Welsh and Langone had extremely successful careers yet, in their dotage, have slipped into states of selective myopia ( “cooked the books”, etc.). The real danger isn’t in interpreting the meaning of the facts. We have to do that to act. The real danger occurs when we make up our own facts and act on them.

    As one of your self-appointed political monitors, I have to tell you that I love this piece and think you will are doing us all a great service by challenging us to separate opinions about news from actual news! Similarly, I think we all need to think about how talking heads in the media can present a known (and verifiable) fact, and then lead us to conclusions about the cause or remedy that are fallacious. Understanding causes, consequences, and remedies is far more difficult that separating fact from fiction and we all must think critically about what we are hearing.

    Keep up the good work my friend!
