The co-best part of waking up
Every morning, I pick up my Post from the sidewalk, make a pot of coffee and turn to the back of the A section. The op-ed columnists are what keep me going in a world that seems to have gone mad. I read most of them, even the ones I don’t agree with, but I especially enjoy Eugene Robinson, Michael Gerson, E. J. Dionne Jr. and Colbert I. King. They have a way of articulating thoughts that have been floating around in my head, half-formed.
The hatred, bigotry and fear that are becoming a part of our everyday reality threaten to suck me in, but I am pulled back by the words of wisdom in the newspaper and realize I am not alone. Thanks to them for speaking for me. Maryanne Kendall, Reston
