Elections, Choices yet Again?

In this season the press is inundated with election stories, polls, and opinion pieces. In the main, the Israel press covers international news in a more comprehensive way than does the national press of the rest of the world. International as well as local election reports and stories are of interest to a wide spectrum of people with differing preconceived notions and political agendas.

To News or Not to News?

Each day as I open the computer, look at my emails and peruse the latest news I never know what to expect; in any case, on any day, certainly the news will not be good. The days blend into one other with ongoing reports of violence, retaliation, political upheaval, attacks on innocent people and general unrest. In times such as these apathy or disillusionment are constant enticements. I have determined not to succumb to these insidious temptations. Remaining steadfast in light of renewed rockets and retaliations, leaders spewing hatred, and polarized rhetoric I sometimes wonder if its better not to know.
