When news becomes news. Not the good kind.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others of the Day: Hint: It’s the one with the cover story about how it’s completely okay, if not beneficial, to feel unease about future uncertainties, as opposed to, say, riot in the streets until sh*t gets done.
Sadly, this is a fairly common occurrence.

I get the The New York Times and Los Angeles Times thrown at my door every morning. I’ll read the front page of The New York Times, then the op-eds, then scan the arts section and then the sports section. Then I do the same with the L.A. Times. I’m not on Facebook and I don’t tweet but I know plenty of people who love both. At the office I’ll have either CNN or ESPN on with the sound off. At night I check in with MSNBC once in a while. The homepage on my web browser is Yahoo, which I’m told it shouldn’t be, but I’ve just been too lazy to change it. From time to time I’ll read some of the comments under stories on it to get a sense of what it must be like at a Klan meeting.
The New York Times party used to be free, but tonight apparently there’s a cover. So like everyone else, I’ll probably just go to the Huffington Post party. And the Huffington Post party is asking people to go to other parties first and just steal food and drinks and bring it from there.

Definitely does not portray Russia in the best light. I wouldn’t go as far as to say it’s culturally ignorant or insensitive. If you like the show, you’ll like it. Even if you don’t, you’ll laugh. I recommend it:

New York Times photographers Tyler Hicks (right, in glasses) and Lynsey Addario (far left) seek cover during a bombing run by Libyan government planes at a checkpoint near the oil refinery of Ras Lanuf on Friday, March 11. Hicks and Addario, along with NYT correspondents Stephen Farrell and Anthony Shadid, were reported missing near lines of advancing Gadhafi forces two days ago, the NYT announced on Wednesday. This was the last known photo of any of the reporters.
