some of my friends sit around every evening and they worry about the times ahead

Today I woke up and heard Gary LaPierre on WBZ insert one judgemental pause too many while reading the news. You know what pauses I mean; the ones where he's obviously inserting a mental "tch-tch-tch" or a retching sound in the middle of a sentence. Figuring I no longer needed to put up with someone simultaneously reading me the news and telling me how I should feel about it (seeing as how I haven't needed "Traffic On The 3s" since 2003), I changed the radio over to WBUR.

And it felt so oddly liberating to know that not all the news stories in the Bay State right now involve lurid, gory deaths.
