Anyone looking forward to the first debate?


Not planning on writing about politics, but I really am looking forward to the first debate on Thursday.  I am also very distressed by it.

Paying close attention to what is happening in the world every single day (being a news junkie) means that I am also painfully aware of how many people do not.  Pay attention, I mean.  If I asked 5 people I know if they are going to watch the debate this week I would get 1 of 2 responses:

  • a) What debate?
  • b) Ugh, NO!


Which is why we are going to hell in a handbasket because too many people rely on the bits and pieces of news they get from John Stewart and oh my God - the entertainment industry.  And they just believe it.  They don't question anymore.

That's scary.

  1. It's scary and sad. I'll be watching both. I am also a news junkie and proud of it.

  2. HI BetteJo. I did watch both the 5PM and the 9PM debates. It's so important to know what's going on in today's world.
