Well, thanks Herb, but complaining to apple will not solve my short-term problems. I will try
tccutil reset AppleEvents
to see if it will reset things, but I somehow doubt it. My problem seems to be rooted in the fact that I was never asked for permission to allow access — reading quickly on the web, it appears others have had this problem. Perhaps when you upgrade to Mojave and you already have TeXShop installed, this is not a problem (my laptop works fine) but when it is a clean install something is fishy.

TeXShop.app should appear there with one or more checked items under it (e.g., System Events.app and/or Finder). Does TeXShop.app appear there? If so, are there items under it that have check boxes? If so, are they checked?
