Remember those commcerials? Do they even still make Calgon?
I think I might have to stop reading the news. While I’m sitting here at work with nothing better to do this morning, I have been reading through news articles on CNN. I’m not bored, but now I’m depressed and shocked at the kind of world I live in. I just finished reading a short article about an infant that is being cared for in the hospital after officials discovered she had been beaten with a fist, burned, and drugged with some medication similar to Xanax. This was after I read about the 6 people found in Memphis that had been shot and stabbed, and before that I was reading about the 16-year-old in Alba, Texas that plotted with her 20-year-old boyfriend to kill her family because her parents told her she had to break up with him.
Police: Teens shot zoo animals
Police: Two steal dog for ransom
Cops: Baby beaten, burned, drugged
Police say impaired man killed mom
Girl locked in home after mom slain
Police: Man holds dad against his will
Lottery official sentenced for scam
Child at funeral falls into pond, dies
Six killed, including 2 children, in home
These are just some of the U.S. headlines right now on CNN. If I’m not reading about that, then I’m pretty much forced to read about the election and I need a little politic-free time. I’m kind of burnt out on things for the moment. I did my part, I cast my vote, and now I want some peace until at least September.
Maybe I should just stick to playing solitaire when I’m bored.
