I can’t actually tell you if things ACTUALLY got worse by watching news stories all the time…I will say personally, people do seem wilder now. So what do we do? STOP with the rubber neck. Get your news from comedians. Parody laws give them a little more latitude and often seem to be a little bit truer. Media start putting a few sprinkles on the firey turd you present us everyday. School bus fire? Have a puppy give the headlines…heck I don’t know. It is psychological, poisoning of sorts… but this is just opinion.
