Well ladies and germs, that about sums it up, those five simple words coalesced within complexity, that i remember hearing my grand mother saying often when i was a young child and although i didnt realize it and couldnt comprehend back then, its becoming increasingly more evident and obvious, knowing all too well how reading the daily news paper and watching the evening news is warping and twisting into an ever more depressing affair, an endless torrent of human misery and crime and horror, that her words could not have been more truthful about and all the more so now, no news really is good news...

Quote: NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS - "The earliest version of this familiar saying was attributed to the English King James I, who wrote in 1616, 'No newis is bettir than evill newis.'

Virtually the modern saying appeared some years later in James Howell's 'Familiar Letters' (c. 1645) with the line, 'I am of the Italians mind that said. no news, good news'."

Reading the daily newspaper and watching the evening news every damn day of the week, arson, murder, robbery, missing children, war, cemetery vandalism, rape, extortion, genocide, child abuse, police brutality ect ect and on and on it f###en goes without end and then the media throws in a slight human interest story just to keep the tax enslaved sheep dragging one foot in front of the other in denial...

Hey WW, have you ever thought of just disconnecting from the daily news on all fronts for at least one day?
