sleigh has good comments about how the explosions that killed almost 200 people in India didn't make a dent in U.S. News yesterday. I'd heard about it because I mostly get my news from you folks (thanks, novapsyche).
Every so often I shudder to think of the cultural and informational bubble most of America seems to reside within.
But some things are still good. I was over at my mom's on Sunday, and Simpsons was on TV, and I hadn't seen that episode before, and it was good, and it made my mom smile (she had a hystorectomy on Friday and was looking kind of fragile), so that was good.
