    You just may be right DDD. When catastrophies occur and we all are injected with so much negative news every day that we can do very little or nothing about, we get anxious.

    This is another reason it is so detrimental to the overall health of a society to only get the news of events the way todays yellow journalistic reporters give it to us.

    Why not something like;

    "While rescue workers are working round the clock and many victims of (insert disaster) are making the best of a very bad situation, there are still many who need more assistance and aid....."

    INSTEAD OF;

    "A few *******s are shooting at rescue workers who are now sitting on their asses for fear of getting shot. We are only interviewing the whiners of the hordes of (insert disaster) that are blaming everyone from the president to God for why they were too stupid to do anything for themselves. ALL IS LOST AND IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT FOR VOTING FOR THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION!"

    "THIS" is why so many people get so frustrated and depressed these days when disaster strikes.

    I know that I dread hearing about what's happening in the world as it is told by the current media. I avoid reading or listening to the news any more, have for years. There will always be enough distraught people yelling at me; "OH MY GOD! DID YOU HEAR WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO (insert type of people) IN (insert place in the world).

    Well, gotta go. I need to take my meds.

    It seems that, periodically, what goes around comes around.

    If we accept the offer from Cuba, Castro will claim that there was something wrong with the way we accepted it and American commielibs will use that as another means to bash the U.S.

    These no win scenarios are getting a little old. Before long, some who are sick of seeing the media manipulate the issues just may start using the media as target practice.
