The Koi Pond of Discontent

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    It’s living, breathing, peaceable entertainment.

    But dump enough food in the tranquil waters of the koi pond, and you will get a feeding frenzy. They can’t help themselves.

    Before it was peaceable entertainment.

    Now it’s chaotic entertainment.

    Either way, it’s entertainment.Report

    Great analogy, Andrew. It’s nonsensical issues like these that prevent me from missing Twitter. Gossip indeed, fit for the cover of Enquirer, and Nothing else.

    Ironically, I have a Koi tattoo on my ankle that I received from an artist in North Shore. Balance is needed in life, and knowing when to pick and choose your battles.

    The personal drama between the president and his adversaries does not affect us personally.

    But sadly, reporters nowadays act more like paparazzi than journalists.Report
