The bad news, horrifying news, the sometimes crushing disappointments and sickening politics, just get to be too much for me. I didn't used to be this affected by the news, but I've noticed during the last couple years this is the case.
DADT, ENDA, Tax cuts for the rich, Lawmakers and Representatives who lie, Presidents who fail miserably on their campaign promises, murders, rapes......I've had it.
So today I'm "TV free"...... for today. I'm not insane after all, I could never just forego the news. But just for today, I'm taking a break from CNN, MSNBC and the occasional Faux News moment of insanity.....for my sanity.
