Tickle the public, make them grin,
The more you tickle, the more you win;
Teach the public, you’ll never get rich,
You’ll live like a beggar and die in a ditch.
– (19th Century Fleet Street rhyme)
About The Overnight Note
A quick look at some of the stories of the day and what might be coming up tomorrow. Still figuring out the time zone thing, but publishing around midnight ET. Monday to Friday for now, unless something big is happening.
Thirty-odd years in journalism – print and online – mostly somewhere between Fleet Street and Wall Street. I’ve written about every US presidential election since 1988, yet occasionally am still rendered speechless.
