The true luxury of hindsight: schadenfreude
I've gotten behind on my New Yorkers--I subscribe to the audio edition--and am just now getting through October's issues, which were filled with news and commentary about the upcoming election. It is infinitely more fun to read about this way--leisure to gloat, of course, but also no nervous tension. I'm getting an idea of why my friend GraceAnne DeCandido says she likes to read the end of a book first.
