In “Am I Just an Old Fogey?,” Tom Sightings of Sightings Over Sixty wonders whether it’s O.K. for Jen Psaki, President Biden’s press secretary, to leave her job and work for MSNBC as a program host on Peacock and an analyst. Sightings says that usually his blog focuses on retirement and living well as people age. But sometimes, just sometimes, things bug him and he has to say something. Find out his thoughts on Psaki’s possible move, and see if you agree.
In the same article, Sightings gives his opinion on “the slap,” Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony last week after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife.
