I am going to do my best to avoid the news, in the knowledge that I won't be able to and that the news I nevertheless see will be enough. Unlike during the first Gulf War I will not be conned into thinking that I need to watch on CNN for fear of being left behind by world shattering events. I know that I have already been left behind; my watching or not watching will not effect the way the bombs fall.
The only thing I will be stockpiling is reading matter, because the only things I expect this war to cause a shortage of are truth and decent television.
Mind you, this is all in the way of a resolution rather than a promise, so I may slip.
