Why do I watch Wings in the morning instead of the news? Because if I watched the news first thing in the morning, I would have the good sense never to leave my apartment. It's hard enough getting out of bed in the morning in the first place. The news is consistently so depressing that the likelihood of me crawling back into bed out of fear and resignation is much higher than if I were to watch any of the poorly-written sitcoms on at the same time. As an experiment, I watched CNN and FoxNews simultaneously this morning and didn't make it to work until 10:15. And I closed my eyes the entire way to the office.
