My Take


Danny puts a bowl of oatmeal in front of me.

What to do first?

Eat the bowl of cereal or read the Wall Street Journal?


If I read the newspaper first I may lose my appetite and not eat my cereal.

I decided to “risk” it and “opt” for reading the newspaper. (Not a world shaking decision.)

It was a good choice.

Putin and the Ukraine representatives are meeting in Turkey to seek a solution to end the war, before it becomes more destructive. …

We cannot, we must not, we will not let it happen.

I have my fingers crossed.

Cross yours.


P.S. I ate my cereal
