During the Obama years I often met colleagues for drinks on Fridays.
There was plenty of news then: a recession, two wars, drone warfare, immigration issues, more.
But the president himself was calm, controlled & not driven to telling lies that caused domestic or foreign crises.
I miss that time specifically because I was able to do more in-depth work, focus on long-term issues for the country.
There was not daily crisis reporting sucking up all the time and energy of reporters.
Stories didn't go stale in one news cycle.
People read more than headlines.
I'm not whining--just commenting.
I miss having the flexibility of taking a weekend away from news.
None of us can afford that, now.
Not reporters nor the rest of America.
Because Trump is so unstable, a long lunch can put you out of the loop.
We say this a lot, but: NOT NORMAL.
