Being Waterboarded By The Newspaper

Reading a newspaper is like being waterboarded. In the morning, when I sit down to read the newspaper, I warn myself that every story that I read will be of events that are dumb, vile, senseless, and disastrous for society. I don’t expect to find a single good news in the newspaper—a newspaper cannot contain any good news because the world is being run by despicable creatures who have no commonsense, no social sense, no economic sense, no moral sense, and no vision for the future. By lowering my expectations, I am able to keep my irritation in control during the five to seven minutes that I generally spend with the newspaper.
