I feel like reading the news is like stepping into an emotional minefield. The headline often seems innocuous enough, but once I've plunged in and it's too late, the content is so horrifying as to make me cringe. This was the case last night, when I clicked on a CNN link about a woman who had been rescued from an icy river last December who is now being charged in the gruesome deaths of her children. I will spare you the details that CNN did not spare me.
