Rant 4-Depressing News [Jan. 18th, 2006|05:14 pm]
[Current Mood |rantastic]

You know, I thought that we had seen the worst possible news when CNN went 24/7, but now, there is a rival in town, the dread pirate NPR. Instead of including stories of heros, breast feeding interspecies squirrel love, puppies, and the occasional traffic report, it's death, rape, explosions, and killing of furry bunnies all before that first cup of coffee. In fact, it was so bad today that my wrists tried to slit themselves. There are people living in huts made of their own poop who feel that this news is too depressing for them.

Have a news report and a smile. I'll take that with a prozac washed down with Champagne thanks.

i know. news is depressing, and the media always wants to report on mostly bad stuff. *sigh*

in happier news, i heard an excellent bit on NPR (Boston) this morning on my drive into work about the "right to die" and all sorts of physicians and patients and family of patients were interviewed.

it was very uplifting, even though the subject matter was sad to an extent.

That's good. We sometimes need a spot of light at the end of a tunnel that isn't a train.

That's the funniest damn line I've read in awhile... People living in huts made from their own poo... :) Have you been hanging out with Sarah lately? Sounds like something she'd say.
