Not ignoring, but speechless

Scanning Daypop and Bloglines of a morning - wow: natural disasters, thousands dead, tens of thousands looking Death in the eye, hundreds of thousands with everything lost, a great city ruined, a racist media, an incompetent President, a shameful administration, a breakdown in law and order, people firing guns at the helicopters come to rescue them, the folly of war, global environment change, we-told-you-so; these things make really, really tempting copy, don't they?

Not here. There's news and the reporting of horrors unimaginable, and then there's a pointless, insulting babble of opinion. Do the right thing.
