As we get over hump day and stagger desperately towards the weekend which shimmers in the distance like the promise of redemption, the international news comes faster and faster, as aides-de-camp (des-camps?) shove press release after press release under the noses of increasingly-distracted journalists, hoping for some favorable coverage.

And then the White House goes and knocks them all off the front page by leaking State Department talking points to the Associated Press, which hasn’t had such a good day in years.

So there you go. A swift dose of perspective for all inhabitants of the Cryptosphere, right up the old hindquarters.
