You know what this morning feels like? It feels like those scenes in movies before the world is forever changed; its business as usual as the TV talking head in the background reassures the viewers about *whatever* being under control and the next scene is empty streets, evidence of societal breakdown and zombies/'the road"/scorched earth/etc.
Three nuclear reactors are in danger of total meltdown at Fukushima. The morning news spent 3 minutes on this story so they could address:
abercrombie and fitch's prosti-tot swimwear line
a teen mom fight on MTV
dancing with the stars
soap star susan lucci's memoirs
I suppose when everybody in the world starts walking around with gills coming off their necks, Fukushima might earn at least the amount of time given to an undefined undeclared unapproved war on Libya.
We have the lamest news media on the face of Earth. And not just morning news -all of it.
Take nothing for granted. Don't postpone joy. Cherish and savor all that you love. Or in the immortal words of The Police: "when the world is running down, you make the best of what's still around".
