Well, I looked at the news. That was a mistake. I am really distressed at the news about Gaza and wondering if the US wants to start a war with Russia over the Ukraine. Granted, a nuclear exchange might stop global warming, and might -- in fact -- be less damaging that global warming. But I am not in favor of it.

The news about Iraq and Syria and Libya is also distressing. So is the news about the kids fleeing violence in Central America. The news out of Africa -- Ebola and Boko Haram -- is not good. There may be good news out of Africa and the rest of the world that we aren't hearing. The US news media are awful.

I am going to exercise at the gym and then go grocery shopping. Maybe I will write to my Congresspeople and argue against foreign entanglements
