World News ...

My boyfriend doesn’t like the fact that I don’t care to watch the News and I don’t care to read news peppers and I really do not want to know what is happening in the world. I watch the news once every 4 months or so to make sure we are not under attack by the falafel eaters and that is it. I said if I was to go on vacation in some remote area with no newspapers, no TV, no mobile and of course no computer, I would be just fine. We have debated many times about that. I understand his point of view, really, but I just cannot deal with the notion of everyday reading all these atrocities.

My day gets fucked up. I become irrational, I get aggravated and sad.

Today after a loooong time I decided to read the news.

World news right? General world news. Not local petty crimes.


Here are some of the today’s Headlines from various newspapers and online News Channels. (Go read if you want to ruin your appetite)
