I really need to stop reading the news more than once a day. The situation in Lebanon (or, on a somewhat milder note, Queens) isn't going to get better just because I'm reading about it and thinking lots of wishful thoughts. And it's really, really depressing.
It's kind of funny, because the situation in much of the world isn't that much different than....it was....*sigh*. I Guess these really haven't beeen a good couple of weeks in a lot of places: A tsunami in Indonesia, blackouts across the US, Increasing violence in Somalia, another bad heat wave, this time in Europe (which, strangely enough, is not experiencing major blackouts), etc., etc.

And people are amazed when I say I don't like summer.

While I was in no particular way referencing the traditional academic cycle (as it is not directly relevent to the news, or to my life anymore), I can certainly agree with that sentiment.

....And I have no problem with you not reading the news, as long as you're willing to do as I say come election day. :P
