I turned off the TV. I’m going with the no news is good news theory. Read that phrase again assuming that all you hear is bad news. No news is good news right now so I am choosing to put my head in the sand and not listen to it any longer. I’ve heard enough about the collapse of financial infrastructures and credit markets imploding on themselves, Hurricane Ike and nor’easters pounding the East Coast, and political discord, and Presidential debates. It has never been more clear to me that Congress couldn’t get a clean bill passed even if the resolution stated “the sky is blue.” Blue would be in question-resulting in bipartisan bickering with a sinister attempt by true blue Democrats to make Republicans look bad, being red and all. And well, then you’d have Treasury Secretaries on their knees begging for support. It just isn’t pretty. News has become so sensationalized and so gloomy, I’m turning it off. Care to join me?
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
