I stopped reading newspapers when world news dominated local.
Only a certain weight can be carried before being weighted down. Nothing within my sphere of influence could change awful things happening thousands of miles away. I needed whatever sustenance I had for events closer to home.
I am trying to shut out the presidential race. The GOP seem prepared to destroy their society

It was no terrorist who mowed down officers in Dallas.
It was an army veteran, trained by American military, who has seen active service.

It hasn't been a whirlwind.
Loss of respect for the institution of law and order has been evident and growing since Ferguson, August 10, 2015.
