This is nearly impossible to accomplish when you watch the News on tv. It seems to matter little what the leading stories of the day are: Japan, Libya, the Recovery, the Un-Recovery, Afghanistan, etc... you are going to first be subjected to Info-tainment, the spam of the wasteland that is network news. I'm sure that if a network news executive were to wander onto my pitiful little space here he would offer me deep critical insight from the current king of Info-tainment in the form of the deep analysis that we have come to expect from the Pundits. It would go something like this: "Uh, duh. Winning!" (As an aside, did you know that the word 'pundit' originated from the Hindi, "... term pandit, which in turn originates from the Sanskrit (a language from ancient India) term paṇḍitá, meaning "learned" (see also Pandit). It refers to someone who is erudite in various subjects and who conducts religious ceremonies and offers counsel to the king." from Wikipedia. Oh, how far we have fallen.)
Anyway, just proving that Modern Man has eschewed the chalice to swill directly from the trough (lest our sense, dignity, or humanity interfere with our ever enlightened Progress) I bring you:
On the 'News', Ms. Deans spoke of the 'spiritual connection' she definitely felt to Jesus when she was on the pole. Lord have mercy.
