I should have known better  
I was told that an alert on TV said that BART and the union representing train operators and station agents had come to a tentative agreement and the impending strike had been averted. I went on SFGate to confirm it, and yes! Hooray! I won't have to swim across the bay to get to work tomorrow!

Then I made a big mistake.

I scrolled down to the comments.

I now want to kick everybody in the teeth.

[the Bishop] No! Don't read the comments![/the Bishop]

I periodically make that mistake, even though I should know better. Isn't that one definition of psychosis?

I don't make it that often, since I usually get my news on dead trees, where the frothing rants of demented asshats are usually confined to the Letters To The Editor (and sometimes the Op/Ed page, when they run something by Pat Buchanan or syndicated from the Washington Post. I miss Molly Ivins).
