I am Sorry

We are watching programs we have recorded. Sixty Minutes. A story about Israel "Controversy in Jerusalem: The City of David." I am squirming on the couch. I can hardly contain myself. I have to shut up because I know I am annoying Paul with my commentary and rage. Which is why I am writing. I am sorry, but the whole history and reality of that region is insane. It makes me crazy. I can't stand it. I can't watch shows about it, I can't read about it because it is all so nuts, preposterous, tragic, violent, unsolvable, unresolvable. And there is nothing I can do to make it less insane. So I choose to not follow what is happening there. Because it just enrages me. Which isn't good for me or anyone. So I am not watching this show anymore. And I am done venting now. I realize I might piss some people off with this. Sorry. This is my Byway. I had to vent. Here is a pretty scene to help wash away the insanity...

  1. You know Wendy, the religious moderates will rise again, and save us from the craziness that is religious fanaticism. The problem with the media is that it exaggerates things to make it look like NOBODY agrees and all is lost, when there are plenty of Palestinians and Jews who are trying to work towards a peaceful solution. It's actually part of my work, studying how the media, by reporting the negative, bad shit repeatedly, actually contributes to the problem by creating social norms that propagate the idea that these ideas are "normal" "typical" and "unchangeable."

    Nuff said. Don't apologize, this is why we love you, your passion for life and the human experience.
