I wish I could describe the visceral reaction, the bile rising, the hands shaking, the tears welling up, that happens when certain topics come up and refuse to die off the main page. And I don't expect people not to talk about them. It's news, it's awful, it matters, immensely. But I can't freaking handle it. I don't want to even have to see the headline. It's so distressing to me some of the things that go on in the world, and I know burying my head in the sand isn't exactly the answer, but, reading it just seems intolerable for some reason today.
And no, I don't really expect you to program in a 'thread ignore' function for me over one article about a dead baby, but I needed to vent.
