I know. None of my posts this week have actually been comment worthy. Why? I’ve just been tuning out the news—which is often a source of blogging material for me–it has been just so damn depressing lately.
Sometimes, I think the news is bad for the economy—news anchors joyfully bleating (I swear I can see glee in some of those morons’ faces) out phrases like, “GM has just laid off God Knows How Many Workers!” Or, “Some local businesses in your area are calling it quits. Find out at five!”
Which, in turn, creates a panic. Especially for those employees hired by those companies.
Plus, I hate hearing stories like the violence in Mumbai or those idiots on Black Friday.
The news is just tends to be so full of negativity, that it is best for me to stay away from the papers and CNN and Fox, until I’ve regained my emotional equilibrium again.
