Today, class, we will be discussing current events...

I'm not all that attentive to current events. Setting a bad example for Bam-Bam, certainly. I can't really explain why either. I mean, I care, I think, about what's going on around me but not with any sense of urgency.

For example, I didn't really start reading articles about the tsunami until pretty late in the day Monday. The thing killed what experts estimate to be over 200,000 people in just a couple hours time and I didn't even catch wind of it until probably 36 hours later.

And it's not because I don't have the means to keep informed because I've been accused of spending WAY too much time on this little black box. The problem is I don't spend that time on any sites that would perform the task for me.

I jump over to CNN only if and after Yahoo gives a good enough teaser as a choice of their 6 headlines on the front page. Any of you that have ever checked out Yahoo's headlines you know that interesting teasers are NOT their forte.

I think what's most sad is that at one point in my life, MSNBC was my homepage. Now my homepage is an iVillage message board I am admittedly addicted to and my primary source of news is the website for the local cheesy paper. Basically what I'm trying to say is that if I put thoughts on paper about a news topic, more often than not it's probably going to have basis from The Foster's and not The New York Times or USA Today.
