Nostalgia for the days when we heard via horse of the King's death several months after the event

I am getting nostalgic for the days when the King died and you found out about it months later, when someone with the news strayed into your village on a horse.

We’ve gone from the sublime to the ridiculous with news coverage. Today’s “revelation” is typical:

Government to roll out same snooping tactics as ‘China and Iran’ by getting access to everybody’s emails, texts, and internet browsing

– said the Mail.

Except you then read the details from a sensible person such as Nick Thornsby and you realise that it is all, more or less, stuff and nonsense.
