A few days ago, I tried to watch one of the nightly network newscasts. After the first two minutes (the “tease” period, where they try to get your attention), I was worn out.

The top stories, in no particular order were: High gas prices, raging out of control. Runaway inflation. Shrinking 401ks. COVID numbers spiking again. The threat of monkeypox. Ten people were killed in a supermarket shooting in Buffalo, New York. Russia continued pummeling Ukraine, amid China antagonizing Taiwan. The abortion battle rages on. Moms can’t find formula for their babies. Border crossings continue to raise concerns. Restaurants closing because they cannot find anyone to work.
