Wow, can it really be December already? With only 3 short weeks until Christmas? I'm not sure how that happened. But then again, I am also unclear about a lot of newsworthy events that are happening each and every day.
So, if you run into me on the street, don't ask me about the latest headlines because, even though I may attempt to feign knowledge, I probably will have no idea what you are talking about. I am ill informed.
That also happens to be the topic of my post over at Dad Revolution today. Here is an excerpt:
I, SeattleDad, will admit it. I once was a junkie. A news junkie that is. I just couldn’t get enough of the stuff.
When I grew up in the 70′s and 80′s on our small dairy farm the local news was almost always on. At 6:00 AM, 5:00 PM and again at 11:00 PM I would learn which storms were on their way, who was robbed, injured, or killed in the big city - and most importantly how our regional sports teams had fared.
Those time slots were then followed by the national news, which to this farm kid was even more foreign, fascinating, and a must see. At first I watched only because my parents did. But eventually watching became habitual for me, and by the time I was a teenager I completely craved being informed about what was happening in the world around me.

Thanks. And as always, all comments are read and much appreciated.
