A Quick Joke - News vs. Entertainment

People ask me, “Mike why do you read movie blogs before you read the actual news?”. I ask them, “Am I still alive?” They say, “Obviously.” I tell them, “Well I obviously made it here, so there wasn’t anything in the news that could change that. Even if there was, I probably could do little to prevent it. So I’ll go to work thinking about cylons and the next Harry Potter movie, and you can go thinking about swine flu, the Supreme Court, and Dick Cheney’s big mouth. Chances are, I’ll live longer."

Agreed! My thought is that there is absolutely nothing I can do about swine flu, the Supreme Court, or Dick Cheney's big mouth. However, I CAN decide if it's worth spending $10 of my hard-earned money on a film, and then spend the day looking forward to it.
