Headlines

 I look at the headlines today and heave a huge sigh, of despair, of hopelessness. Is anyone paying attention to (along with everything else) our end of days climate change? Anyone with power? And yes I'm aware there's nothing individuals can do. And I keep thinking about the film "Don't Look Up" and thinking how prescient it is as we roll our way to species extinction.

  1. Sigh. Just as soon as I take a look at the headlines my day takes a downward plummet.

  2. Take care, be well, and remember consuming news is bad for your health. (I'm not saying to ignore reality; I'm saying don't stew in things over which you have no control. And remember, we're at peace; we live in a relatively free, prosperous and democratic society; and your neighbors are probably very nice people.)

  3. Can you become allergic to headlines? I don't know what part of the human body our dear leaders use for thinking, but I'm afraid it's not the part between their ears. Our headlines look approximately the same.

  4. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the ‘Doomsday Glacier’: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/dec/18/scientists-watch-giant-doomsday-glacier-in-antarctica-with-concern. Fun times. Happy New Year.

  6. Fortunately/Unfortunately most of those headlines will have no effect on the majority of our lives.
    Tom said it all….

  7. Where are the good, happy headlines? Surely there must be SOME good news somewhere?

  8. The only reason I get newspapers is for their crossword puzzles.
