It's not all about the Presidential Election

Last week I was sick and got to watch lots of MSNBC all day. 80% of the coverage was debating and analyzing who was up and who was down in the presidential campaign. There must have been an hour of analysis on each sentence a candidate said.

Our Presidential Race is important, but what about everything else going on in the world. There was only a minute (if that) each hour devoted to the troubles in Tibet, and none to other world issues like Darfur:

I do not have a radio while living here in DC for the month, so I miss the balanced news coverage of NPR. At least I can watch BBC News at night which gives a more realistic account of the happenings in our world.

If you agree, work with me and the National Physicians Alliance to make Hospital Food Healthy. Have ideas about what is healthy food for a hospital?
Let me know.
