It's obvious to me
that generally speaking,
I think I'm more of a rant kind of guy
rather than a raver.
I say this because,
about two months ago I made a conscious effort
to watch/read/listen to less "news,"
which has translated to having less to say.
I'll scan the headlines
to make sure I don't miss something really important.
I'd hate to wake up and find we've been sold to China or something
and I didn't know it
because I was in this self imposed news blackout.
I don't think that's a good thing
as far as keeping up,
but I think it's doing my head wonders.
Ever since the school shooting in New England,
after which I contacted my legislators
expressing my opinion on gun control
with the frequency of a borderline stalker,
Not one response other than a form letter from my Senator.
This is a house I saw in Giverny, France
right next to Monet's Garden.
I insert it here for no other reason
other than to lighten the mood.
I found it interesting in it's plainness .
So, back to business.
My point is this.
It's much easier to rant if you watch CNN every morning.
Hell, I could watch one 15 minute segment
and have enough blog material for a week.
So, I'll have to rave more I guess.
