  1. Fortunately or unfortunately I rarely read a newspaper or watch TV news anymore. Still haven’t figured out if that’s a good thing or not. On the diet front, I did just read that eating FAT is good for you! Thanks for recapping the news for me.

  2. Exactly how I feel about the news most days. Add: Global warming is a left wing conspiracy/hoax . . . Atheists are trying to destroy Christmas . . . Christians are being picked on . . . atheists/gays/abortion-supporters are destroying the family . . . Occupy protesters are terrorists . . .

    We could probably go on all day.

    • I don’t know if global warming is a hoax, but I certainly hope so. That would be a fabulous Got Ya. Laughs on me and ‘Whew!’

      On the other hand, sustainable living and green living and recycling and individual independence from the grid is still a GOOD IDEA. It’s easy to think everything will be fine, but a little insurance doesn’t hurt.
