One thing she won't be doing, she said, is inundating herself with C-Span and Imus; no more news hounding and midnight wonkery. "I've cut myself off because eventually it strafes your sense of well being and ability to make jokes," she said.

--from a July 25th profile of Meryl Streep in the NY Times

I've been withdrawing from the news lately. On the way home from work yesterday I listened to Little Stevie Wonder (of the Fingertips era, not Ebony and Ivory) instead of NPR. Even The Daily Show has palled for me. I merely scan the Times. I've made a turn to fiction for reading. Turn, turn, turn.

Me too. It does wear on you, as Streep said. I kinda figure at this point, we're coasting to the election, no reason to get too excited one way or another until it's over. Either the Dems win and we rebuild, or the Bushites manage to steal the election, and democracy as we know it is over. So essentially no reason to pay too close attention anymore.

But the Daily Show is still funny. LOL

I just joined a Book Club -- so I'm looking forward to reading some fiction too!

I have to admit, I watched Monday's Daily Show last night at Jeff's behest, and it WAS funny.
