Here’s my standard, kneejerk response to reading the headline of most cnn.com articles: “I don’t give a shit about your goddamn xxx.”
I vacillate between thinking I’ve become unbelievably cynical and thinking reportage has become unbelievably cynical. Either way, it’s a painful thing, and becomes exponentially more painful if I *see* a report on television instead of read about it online. Therefore I avoid tv news as much as I can.
God damn Time’s inexorable marching fucking forward.
