The “News” these days

I find the “news” over the internet to be disturbing in the sense of its stories being a foretelling of the sadness and trouble to come. Think of The Road.  Or maybe, No Country for Old Men.  I usually start with something on my poor portal  (someday I will get around to tidying it up).

It seems “the” news is telling us of a disintegration of civilization.  Nothing new, of course, it is all there in our history.  In the history of the world.  All we need to do is peruse the newspapers and magazines being published over the internet since the internet became popular.

Enough is there to confirm what I am talking about.
