Reflections on appearing on television

Trunk and Rocket Man have been appearing semi-regularly on television since last September. My first appearance came a little more than a week ago, and the first appearance in which I presented an argument was this past Wednesday. After that appearance, I wrote a paragraph about the strangeness of it all. I intended that the paragraph would introduce a longer piece, but that piece hasn’t panned out.
I have decided to use the paragraph as a free-standing post. After all, this is a web log, and thus, in part, a political diary. And perhaps some readers will enjoy the paragraph.

These are strange times. A decade ago, I would labor for dozens of hours on a piece concerning a subject about which I had specialized expertise. Perhaps one out of three times, my product would be published. These days, I spend one hour writing two posts about America
