They say Ignorance is Bliss. I think they might be right.
I rarely watch the news. I don't go searching for news on the web. I don't listen to much radio. Weeks can go by without me knowing what's gone on in the outside world. To an extent, I like it.
People ask me how I feel about the H1N1 vaccine & I say, "I dunno'." I know it's a shot. I know it's for the flu formerly known as Swine Flu. I know they keep pushing it on the public, but I'm under the impression it's not that easy to get around here.
A few minutes ago I had to Google Fort Hood because I saw someone's Status Update on Facebook & didn't understand it.
When Michael Jackson died, I missed all the media hype & news coverage.
When the little boy supposedly went up in the weather balloon, I was blessedly in the dark.
I don't know what's going on with the stock market.
I have no opinion on the latest insider trading scandal.
I don't even know what Mary Kay LeTourneau is up to these days.
I may not know what's going on around me, but I do know that it's much more peaceful in my bubble than it ever is on MSNBC.
