I got rid of cable at the beginning of the year.
The kids protested, but got the Because I Said So response.
It didn't take long for us to adjust.
I love not having television. The only show I regularly watched was LOST.
I could get it on Hulu and it was the last season anyway.
During the presidential election I, like many, got junked out on CNN.
I needed my daily Obama fix.
I think that's when I found The Daily Show.
I love Jon Stewart. Especially when he's trying to keep a straight face.
Election night, I was on the phone with Sister Adrienne, and it was Jon Stewart who told me Obama had won. We got all teary and goosebumpy together.
Sometimes I think I miss CNN. Until I'm in the pizza place waiting for my order and get a 5 minute dose. Where's the serious unbiased reporting? They always sound over dramatic and adolescent to me. CNN sucks. That's all I have to say.
I'm completely unplugged now.
I had no idea about the miners.
I didn't know about the dumbasses opposing the building of a mosque near Ground Zero.
I heard about the kid who jumped off the George Washington Bridge at work.
I hate the New York Times.
And I definitely don't want to know why everyone's so aggravated with Obama.
That would just make me sad.
I mostly get my current events from Blogland.
If something really fucked up is going on, Ms. Moon, or Elizabeth, or Sarcastic Bastard are sure to give a head's up and then I hit Google.
Pathetic. But it keeps me sane and happy. I'm tired of being overwhelmed by the weight of all the fucked up shit we humans are doing. We suck. So I don't watch T.V.
But I saw a widget of my Jon on the sidebar over at Rage Against the Minivan.
It's kind of ironic cause I think Haiti is what finally put me over the edge and slammed my head into the sand.
The best part of it all is that I can visit my secret boyfriend online every night!
We don't need no stinkin tv here. Comedy Central on the Internet.
Jon Stewart at my beck and call whenever my heart desires.
Restore my sanity, Jon. We beseech thee, hear us.
