Wodehouse to the rescue !
Halfway through "The Inimitable Jeeves" which I had picked up to re-read during my posting in the Covid ward, it struck me that this is, in many ways, about the right time to read Wodehouse. Perhaps you say that any time is right to read Wodehouse, but now especially, when one is, at every moment, struggling each moment to keeps one's head above the deluge of bad news from all sides, it seems all the more appropriate.
We seem to live in the age of news, global, national and regional, real and fake, and it is always the worst parts that trickle down so that almost all of it that reaches us seems to be sordid and depressing. It affects everyone, inducing either feelings of depair and helplessness or anger and frustration. But there is little one can do about such large issues, with the result that most of this anger and frustration is vented on different "social" media, serving only to inflame them further, inducing a sense of helpless impotence.
