What Fresh Hell is This?

Knocks on my door in the morning often lead to one of 2 things. It's our Housing Authority with some issue or other, or it's a friend with an issue that leads to a coffee klatch that can last for hours, include phone calls and calls for another larger meeting. Neither are my favorite way to start the week.

And so it's noon and I've just gotten round to reading the news.

You have to be deranged to enter a school and fire at little children. That's the only excuse I can think of.

I agree with Delores, but also wonder sometimes if I'm not a little deranged for trying to keep up with the news, ya know? With some stories, ignorance might truly be bliss.

Lawless- The world's gone mad. Stark, staring mad. How anyone could hurt a little child... I don't know.

Susan- The news can cast a gloom over your outlook, that's for sure. I'd rather know what the hell's going on than be ignorant, though.
