    the *real* news is ignored, or glossed over, within 30 secs. The "fluff" gets the majority of the attention span of the talking heads... ratings and "share"...
    end of 'nother mini-rant.

    It reminds me of the song Dirty Laundry by Don Henley-

    I make my living off the Evening News
    Just give me something-something I can use
    People love it when you lose,
    They love dirty laundry

    Well I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
    I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
    Come and whisper in my ear
    Give us dirty laundry

    There was a discussion on the Sjogren's site about somatization disorders. They were concerned that this could make it easier for docs to label people like us as having a mental disorder. We already have enough problems with being told that "it's all in your head" or that we're just "drug-seeking".

    Here's the link to the article that they were discussing:

    How do you feel?
    Hugs,
