Take an MSM holiday advises Sheldon Droby, at the Huffington Post:
If you want to get through the aftermath of the Virginia Tech massacre in a healthier way, don’t watch the news for about a week. If you did not need an anti-depressant before this event, you may have to start if you decide to listen, watch, or read the news. These vultures will do you in.
Spend a week with your family and hug them everyday to appreciate them. Take some time off from work and connect with the people you love. Go to the movies or a museum or do anything that interests you to divert your attention from the toxic doses of media poisoning that is about to follow. The MSM will spend endless hours talking about the “why did he do it” or “why did this happen” routines that they always go through. And the answer is there is no answer or rational explanation for this. Given the state of our society, I would ask why this does not happen more often here.
Yesterday’s tragedy is a daily event in many other places in the world.
Then, alas, he starts blaming Bush over Iraq, so I’d stop there, and not bother reading the whole thing.
