Randy and Ruth, I have no patience for TV news. Not only for the sensationalized trivia in lieu of things that profoundly affect the world -- my #1 pet peeve is "celebrity non-news" that we wouldn't care less about if a random person had the same drunk-driving arrest or fight with their spouse -- and cheap, lazy reporting and reacting to tweets instead of actually reporting news....
I've long preferred newspapers and the web for reading articles in my own order, at my own pace. In the car, I find public radio -- NPR, BBC World Service late at night -- to be an oasis of thoughtfulness and calm.
Kathy, I hope you feel better soon!
And Chris, thanks for the petition link urging the UN Security Council to refer ISIS to the International Criminal Court for kidnapping people into slavery. http://www.walkfree.org/iraq-slavery-icc/

Same for me Grinning Cat. I don't mind when people look strange at me for not knowing celebrities, TV-programmes or fashion houses. Perhaps I'm a little proud of it.
