The co-best part of wak­ing up

The Washington Post - - FREE FOR ALL -

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
