Lately, it's always the impeachment. Either live coverage on TV, or talking about live coverage on TV, radio and online. Probably in newspapers, too, or what's let of them.
The Framers hung Chekov's Gun over the fireplace (and it wasn't a phaser); one can only assume they did so thinking it would be used. On that basis, regular citizens calling this impeachment "illegitimate" and muttering darkly of coups or fretting that it's not instantaneous, won't make anything unhappen and doesn't end in a burning at stake are terribly mistaken. It's a part of the government process (albeit seldom seen) and it plays out in the prescribed order. Our part was done in the voting booth, except for writing our Congressthings (and I'm sure you've been very diligent about that, right?) and at this point, we're all just along for the ride.
Relax and try to enjoy it. Don't forget to wave and yell during the exciting parts!
