    Morning Joe on MSNBC?

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Maybe when the kids are gone, it’s a fight against time just to get them out on time as is.

    No kidding. We keep the TV off in the morning until all the kids are ready and/or gone to school. Or, in other words, until they are gone to school.

    My wife is not a TV person. So the TV stays off at our house until the kids come home from school. It is never just on. I think she likes any silence she can get.

    Do people still eat breakfast together? We don't have any school kids and we still don't have any TV on... and on a typical day no one eats in our house till about 11 am or even noon.

    Unless there's some huge breaking news, the TV is off in the morning. My breakfast habit (in place for 50+ years) is to read one or both of our morning newspapers. I wonder if I'm the last one here to subscribe to newspapers.

    We get our local paper. http://www.inyoregister.com/

    It comes out 3 times a week and takes about 5 minutes to read. But my kids are in it all the time, so it is well worth the subscription to clip pictures of them.

    I was a paperboy twice growing up. First with the DesNews, which was annoying since it was an afternoon paper back then and I'd have to deliver papers before going to play. Then I later took on the SLTrib, which sucked because I had to wake up at 5:00 every morning (even in summer), but the SLTrib subscribers tipped better. However, riding my bike in teh snow with a shoulder bag full in front and back with papers was not easy.

    If you want to see how pornographic we have become with these shootings, check out this shit. I turned it off as soon as the girl said her friend died when I was watching it live, but now, inspecting it not as a viewer, but as a critic, notice how they cut straight to her face and show her suffering.

    Right then and there they should've stopped the interview and apologized for the question. There is no way, given that the number of dead hasn't increased since yesterday, that they didn't know that her friend was dead. No producer is not going to know that. Maybe Savannah didn't know and they had her ask, but someone, somewhere, in the drivers seat of that show, knew, and it makes all that human suffering pornography of violence.

    The thought of figuring out how to raise my kids in Costa Rica grows stronger all the time.
