Allowing ourselves to succumb to the social, political and economic malaise that infects our country is the single greatest limiting factor in building healthier communities. Let’s be honest. Most news organizations, special interest groups and political figures devote an inordinate amount of energy wallowing in the long litany of seemingly insoluble problems and as a result a profound sense of defeatism and powerlessness has been created. If you watch the 24-hour news channels for more than a few minutes, you’re getting a mind-numbing dose of pessimism and cynicism. The FCC ought to require broadcast outlets to provide written warnings about the hazard to your mental health.
