Out of Quarters

Following poem written after reading recent news headlines, nearly all of which seem to be hyperbolic fear mongering.


Nothing endangers us more

than Donkey Kong barrels,

Harm filled potential rolling,

prepare to jump oncoming perils.

Yes, that's why I pretty much quit watching TV news. The newspaper, I can pick what I want to ignore. But I quit taking the newspaper too. Nothing worth reading, really.

I followed much the same path. I quit TV news. I quit the papers I subscribed to. Now I'm using online news aggregates... may have to quit them too... but then what? I feel like there is some minimal news information I need to fulfill basic civic duties... but how to do that and not get beat-down by the lack of actual news and dominance of demagoguery?
