See, this is why I hate posting every day. People feel like they don't need to comment anymore and then I feel totally unfulfilled. It's so discouraging to come here every day and see "Comments:0" I have found that refraining from television brings not only gobs more time, but also lowers my blood pressure. Nightly News is just a bad idea; even without the news I still know that people are dying every day in Iraq (and probably most other countries of the world, but never mind) and Afghanistan, that the government generally tries to take more money than it should and is mostly bureaucratic and incompetent, and that everybody who's anybody hates Bush. Wow! Why is it called "news" again? The hard part is not watching 24 and LOST while they're airing...have to wait for Sunday. But even that I'm getting used to. The first day of fine weather here in quite a while means that tennis practice will actually take place on tennis courts. How exciting; we will be able to desisist (I hope) running up and down stairs in the stadium and performing other heart racing activities. I watched part of the 1/2 hour news hour, which was disappointing. They're trying to be funny, but the weird thing is the news they're "reporting" should probably be better known, not just comedy fodder. That, and it was just a little over the top. But then most fake news shows are, I guess. But when I agree with them in principle, it makes me cringe...whereas when I disagree, I get to guffaw because they're so stupid. OH WELL.
