Why I don't like the news.

A while ago I was watching the evening news and I was reminded why I don't really do that. After they talked about the latest gang and drug problems Kevin Eubank said, "Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse... guess what folks, it can!" All of his colleagues agreed and he went on to talk about the next horrific event that was probably weather related but I don't remember.

I'm not really an ostrich, its just that every time I watch or read the news there are too many horrible stories.  I refuse to spend my time focused on the cesspool portion of humanity when I am surrounded by so many wonderful people who are doing great things with their lives.  That is one of the great things about blogs, e-mail and facebook, it allows me to focus on the good people I know, so I don't have to waste time with the news sites.

I couldn't agree more.

I totally agree! I haven't watched the news in years as it's so negative and scary. Some things I just want to be naive to... Cautious, but naive. :)
