I head off today for a little ski weekend away.Â Â And I will tell you, that no little break or vacation has come at a better time than this one.Â I just want to stop reading the news for a couple of days, because it is just getting me so… so… angry.
No, not the politics.Â There is nothing really new there.Â While I get frustrated with things like the Faux News Channel pretending to be fair or balanced, or Chris Matthews of MSNBC, who can’t seem to find a nice word to say about any female politician, and seems to take great joy in finding new ways to insult Hillary (for the record, I am not a Hillary supporter, but Matthews is way out of line).Â No those things are just part and parcel for politics today.
What has gotten to me, is once again, we are starting to see a rash of stories, on parents that just are… broken.Â The woman that confessed to suffocating her autistic child,Â The mother that was found in the house with the decomposing remains of her 4 daughters, whom she claimed were ‘possesed’ when she was arrested on murder charges, the search continues for 4 children allegedly thrown off a bridge by their father/step-father after he has a fight with his wife.
On top of these, today I read the story about a woman, that was out on $10,000 bail for child endangerment (she left her 9 month old alone and unattended in a car), has now been charged with murdering that same child.
I just can’t take these “parents” any longer.Â I’m so glad I’m on vacation.
