News is never in dearth. Often, reading news becomes an exercise in tickling or in engaging our minds, as if newspapers existed to help us in mental exercises. Today’s post is a response to some news reports.

Probably these reports and this blog post will be forgotten by the time you go to bed tonight, but we do tend to trivialize news that is not trivial- we make it trivial because we are getting desensitized to wrongs happening to others around us.
