For several years now, I have only watched the news to catch the weather and some OSU sports info. Currently, there is absolutely no need to turn the news on. I can give you the forecast. It will be hot and dry. There is no college sports going on right now. So, it is a whole bunch of republican/democrat bickering, getting nothing done, blaming each other and that obama dude talking crap.
I spend a lot of time in a pickup; therefore, I listen to a lot of radio. XM radio is the way to go. I don’t have to listen to any news. I can listen to whatever kind of music I want. I listen to a lot of Blue Collar comedy channel. I don’t learn anything but at least I am in a better mood. They play a lot of Jerry Clower and Mel Tillis on there. Pretty good stuff.
