Maybe I am in this negative place because we ditched the TV a few years ago. I wouldn't have read so many books about the environment in my spare time (Just finished Collapse)No, I would still be watching David Letterman, gossip shows, and Cake Boss. When one of my daughters tells me she thinks she doesn't want to have kids I secretly think this is good because the thought of bringing up children in this world is too depressing. In fact, if I was a young woman I wouldn't even have children knowing what they are going to deal with in their own lives (water, fuel shortage, unpredictable weather, blah blah blah...). Being only halfway though my life (hopefully), I don't want to spend the rest of it in this place of negativity. It sucks! Thats where Chris Turner comes in. I just read a review about his new book and promptly put my name on the waiting list at the library. This dude better deliver the dose of optimism I am looking for. I am ready to be convinced and can't wait to dig into his book.
PS: The B man broke down and ordered cable. He blames it on the return of the Jets (Go Jets!!). Its basically ok except that Daughter Younger is now addicted to the Kardashians.
