Out tortoiseshell cat, Millie, was recently diagnosed with what is probably lymphoma. It could possibly be a form of leukemia, but we would need to do a bone marrow test to find out, and the treatment is the same in either case. She gets a smear of prednisone cream in her ear every day, which we will gradually reduce to a maintenance dose every other day in a week or so. She is rallying, and is almost back to her pre-cancer goofy self.
Our children are real cat lovers, and insist I give regular news updates regarding her condition and prognosis. It feels some days as though I am running an official Millie news network. I could call it MNN.
I myself have been consumed with the news of late, and go to my regular news sources. NPR, CNN, Reuters, and MSNBC too frequently for my own mental health. I am alarmed by 45’s plan to start his own news service, which I can’t imagine being at all reasonable or accurate. I doubt I would ever look at it.
What news services do you follow or not follow? What kind of news service would you start if money was no object?
