Except for the national news stories going on (Iraq, the elections etc) it seems that every story is about this young college student being found dead in a ditch, or this family being executed on the highway, or this person killing innocent young girls in a school, or this person entering his work place killing 7 people and then killing himself. I have gotten to the point where every time I see these stories, the feeling that there is just so much evil in the world becomes overwhelming, and I cringe and just turn the station. And then there are news shows that feature these stories for days on end. I guess I come to wonder about 2 things; where does all this evil behavior come from (it seems to be happening more and more), and why do news programs have to dwell on these stories for days on end? It seems so tasteless and exploitative of the terrible tragedy in the victims families.
