From now on - or at least until we have a massive paradigm shift in the direction things keep going lately - I am no longer watching news in the morning. Hell, I might not even watch TV anymore until my shows kick off their new seasons. I just don't have the intestinal fortitude to start my days by looking at this shit anymore. When all there is is BAD news, you're better off getting no news at all.
I'll wait until I get to the city then look at the papers. At least by then I've managed to choke some Lucky Charms down without regurgitating them back up again.
