Five (This World Is Hard)

Samoan woman abandons baby after secret in-flight birth

I don't understand how someone can do that. How can someone just abandon their child? I can see not wanting to raise the baby but there are so many other options. Firstly, abort it. This woman was going to NZ and I'm pretty sure abortion is legal there. If abortion doesn't float your boat, then put the baby up for adoption. Nothing says you have to keep it.

I read the newspaper every day. There are so many stupid articles or articles about stupid people. I sometimes wonder why I want to go into this profession. Why do I want to surround myself with such depressing things? Yet to avoid it would mean to avoid reality. I don't want to be one of those people who pretends something doesn't exist just because I don't like it. Reality is what it is and just because I'm not happy doesn't mean it's not reality.

Popular cereal is a drug, US food watchdog says.

Does this mean Cheerios is going to be the new street drug?
