Slough of Despond

Going to brood for awhile I think, so I don't know if I will be posting, much. I don't believe much of what I hear or read, but all the news, economic, political, personal, is just dark beyond belief. I can barely force myself to read the papers anymore, or look around much on here. Since 2006, there has been little to read but disaster and rumors of disaster.
Enough. I suppose if people want to be fools and drink the Kool-Aid, there's nothing for it but to let them.

I think it's worth reminding everyone that the "news" is a business, and businesses make money by bringing in people, which they do by - dare I say it - being dramatic?

Not that everything is all peachy keen, but hey, you're alive, I'm alive. I've got God and Haagen Dazs in the freezer. (Well, God insn't actually *in* the freezer.) I can ride it out.

Money certainly isn't what we should revolve our lives around - maybe this is a good lesson for us to not be so caught up in our materialistic ways.
