it's the end of the world as we know it
You wake up on a Monday morning to find that all hell has broken loose. It's days like this when you want to go back to bed, hide under the covers and pretend the world is a happy place filled with kitties and rainbows.
No rainbows here. Fires are ravaging California. LT Smash has pictures and up to the minute coverage. Unlike the major news channels. Last night I had to wait and wait for coverage of these devastating fires while the stations covered football, weather and entertainment news.
No rainbows here. Continuing on with my thoughts from yesterday (on the vicious hatred that spews from both the far left and far right), I took a trip to Democratic Underground and Free Republic. DU members manage to blame the fires Bush, the war in Iraq and other Republican type things. Freepers, meanwhile, are blaming pagans and Halloween.
I still can't understand why the major news networks (CNN, FOX, MSNBC) will give wall-to-wall coverage slow car chases and pre-trial hearings of sports stars as if they were earth-shattering news, but I have to constantly switch channels to try to find coverage of the California fires and the bombings in Iraq.
I keep feeling like every day brings us one step closer to self-implosion, that one day, we are just going to spontaneously combust as the earth explodes from within. Too much chaos, too much disaster, too much darkness and not enough rainbows.
I'm going to find some silver linings. Let me know if you see any, ok?
