Bad News

The main topic of conversation with the passengers all weekend was the clocks going forward. But one couple I picked up said they knew nothing about it and wouldn't have known about it unless I had mentioned it to them. They both said that no newspapers were read by anyone in the family and absolutely no news was watched on TV, they only ever watched reality TV shows and soaps. I was shocked by this admission ,which by the way they seemed proud of, and asked about how they knew what was going on in the world. The answer they gave me was that"if it didn't affect them they didn't care, and it's only ever bad news that they tell you anyway" They went on to proudly tell that they had four children, up to the age of fifteen and that they had never read a paper or watched the news in their life's. Myself I don't think that they should have been allowed to breed at all with that outlook on life.

It's too late. They've already bred. Shame. Their kids don't really have much of a chance, do they?

I think saying they shouldnt be allowed to breed is a bit harsh. Just because someone doesnt do things the same as you doesnt make it wrong, look at the Amish!
TBH I often wish I hadnt heard the news its so depressing :(
