-—Its nervewracking; but most people in general cant seem to look away for a second - and theyre paying a price for total knowledge of all the bad stuff in the world in all sorts of mental and physical ailments.—
Somehow I got it in my head that watching the nightly sports and murders show was a civic duty, like voting. Anyone know how that idea got in my head?
Yep. Watching the news got to be such a HABIT, for most of us that we couldn’t miss it for anything. . and, the anchors and newscasters were THERE every night, faithful as could be (and paid handsomely for it, too) - so, we got sucked in.
I read somewhere about a doctor who went to some third world country to work at a clinic. He could get no news there. He said he came back to the states six months later, and he had really missed very little in the way of news and that anything important, someone filled him in on when he got back. He got away from the minutae and had six months of relative peace.
