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?
