Dear fellow journalists:

Feeling beleaguered?  Even more so after yesterday’s rant by President Trump?

Today, I found solace in these words of a son of Massachusetts, of liberty, the country’s first vice president and its second president:

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.  — John Adams

To all of you: Keep up the good work.
