I forgot to mention this in my update post.

I was hungry at the end of the workday today [Friday] and didn't think spaghetti at 6:30-ish was really gonna suffice, so I stopped at the Grille to get some food before I went to catch a bus.  I sat down and ate my slice of pizza while watching CNN's "Situation Room."  There was extended i-report footage of the plane crash in Buffalo, and I was thinking, "Why am I watching this?  Why are you showing me this?"  It was minutes and minutes of the fire after the crash.  And then there was footage of grieving family members and I kept thinking how if someone I loved died and tv interviewers were approaching me I'd be like, "Fuck off and let me grieve."  I was watching grownups crying, weeping, sobbing.  How is this something to be broadcast on (inter?)national tv?

The longer I'm up, the more certain I am that I want to go to Temple Shalom in the morning, so I should really peel myself away from the computer and move myself into some sort of restful state.
