From Brewer's Famous Quotations, entry under Anonymous:
This is a good example of a quotation formula that can be applied to more than one subject, to the extent that it is difficult to say what it was originally directed at. However, although Mencken (1942) has ‘Anon.’ saying, ‘The duty of a newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable’, and newspapers seem likely to have been the original subject of the remark, in John K. Winkler, W.R. Hearst: An American Phenomenon (1928), is this: ‘For forty years he has carried out, rather literally, the dictum of Mr Dooley [i.e. the creation of Finley Peter Dunne] that the mission of a modern newspaper is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable”.’

This show has been a ride on a psychedelic Wonder Wheel. An auditory panacea. Thanks, Irwin!

Oh my god, Irwin, I have been crying with laughter & appreciation for two straight hours, thank you so much, and haven't been able to tear myself away. Also I am wearing my mom's bathrobe & so feel a little crazy anyway. Good vibes to everyone!

We all have pandemic fatigue. Except the ones who are actually stricken with the disease. They envy those only suffering pandemic fatigue. Love to overstressed medical personnel everywhere.
