Well, it's ok IMO to wish Chris would retire (and who knows--maybe after this health experience he just might--surgery is hard on the body) because he's no longer able to be the host that he used to be. Stuff is happening today really fast. Lots of names, titles, agencies, congressmen & women, Senators, their districts and states, countries & dictators, etc., to remember quickly. And, of course, on top of all that, the impeachment hearings taking place. I've observed that it's hard enough for the younger hosts to keep up with it all.
