Over the years I have consumed external news sources, mostly the BBC, to get a second perspective on what is going on, usually at the national level. These days I find it hard to get anything resembling objective news from most US sources. Even the BBC has lost some of its perspective. I’m have found the UK Guardian to be a good source of news recently, though. I never expected I would be going to foreign news sources for local news. The self-inflicted wounds in Texas, and other states seems to be continuing. It has gotten so bad the Texas Governor has defied the President and started wearing a mask.
