Today at the editor’s glance: On Free For All Fridays a little after 9 this morning on WNZF, David Ayres welcomes Miriam Griffin, the University of North Florida’s newly named Mednexus Palm Coast director, Flagler Tiger Bay’s Greg Davis, who will discuss the coming candidate forum on the Palm Coast mayoral election, and Bob Snyder, director of the Flagler Health Department and the just-named Citizen of the Year (by Flagler Beach Rotary). The health department has made 63 consecutive appearances on Free For All Fridays, keeping the community informed about the pandemic. That streak is drawing to a close, now that normalcy is approaching. On stage: Beau Wades directs the City Repertory Theatre production of David Ives’s “All in the Timing” at 7:30 p.m. at the black box theater by the Flagler Auditorium. (See the preview: “From ‘Hamlet’-Writing Chimps to Erotic Miniature Golf, It’s ‘All in the Timing’ for City Rep’s Latest Production.” At the Flagler Playhouse, it’s the workshop production of “The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey” also at 7:30 p.m. Euro 2020: Sweden goes up against Slovakia at 9 a.m., Croatia and the Czech Republic at noon and the match of the day, England v. Scotland at 3 p.m. from Wembley Stadium in London. All matches on Univision and ESPN. In Palm Coast expect lower 90s and only a 20 percent chance of rain.

“I worried, and continue to worry, about the degree to which I and other journalists — opinion writers, especially — have contributed to the dynamics we decry: the toxic tenor of American discourse, the furious pitch of American politics, the volume and vitriol of it all. I worry, too, about how frequently we shove ambivalence and ambiguity aside. Ambivalence and ambiguity aren’t necessarily signs of weakness or sins of indecision. They can be apt responses to events that we don’t yet understand, with outcomes that we can’t predict. But they don’t make for bold sentences or tidy talking points. So we pundits are merchants of certitude in a world where much is in doubt and many questions don’t have one right answer. As such, we may be encouraging arrogance and unyieldingness in our readers, viewers and listeners. And those attributes need no encouragement in America today.”

The apology of a mouse to a rattlesnake. This may be the saddest thing I’ve ever read on this site.
