Lent Season: News Programs

It is the season of Lent in some communities, and I have decided to learn to meditate, work on F13 testing, and give up reading, listening, and watching various News programs for the next 40 days as best I can.

That is turning out to be the hardest.. already today I have had to unsubscribe from 20 RSS channels, remove a couple of bi-daily email mailings and stop myself from hitting the BBC website 3-4 times. My hope however is that I will break out of this malaise of fear, anger, hatred, and suffering that reading the news seems to bring every day. [Nothing is going right, its all X's fault, expect this weeks apocalypse by Thursday of next week...] In the end, I am hoping that some level of ignorance will be bliss :). We shall see.
