I can't keep up with the bad news

Once again I've fallen behind on posts due to personal circumstances. I hate when that happens.  I've missed out on a lot of important stories.  For example, the CPI index of inflation was up again for March, beyond forecasts, hitting a four decade high of 8.5%.  But if you look at Shadowstats, where they also keep track of inflation as it was calculated in 1980 (i.e. more realistically), it's above 16%.  At Jimmy Carter's worst inflation it peaked at just under 15% in April 1980.

Let's Go Brandon, which was once labeled transitory has now relabeled (how Orwellian) the inflation as the Putin Price Hike.  Wrongly of course.  But to be fair, what else is an incompetent supposed to do beside blameshift?
