The phrase ‘no news is good news’ has always seemed ambiguous to me. I’m never quite sure whether it’s supposed to mean ‘if you don’t hear anything, everything’s going well’; or ‘there’s no good news at all’.
I have a guilty confession: I hate reading the news. Because… there’s no good news. I’d rather avoid it and pretend everything’s going well in the world. But out of some misguided sense of civic duty, I do skim the headlines regularly; and Hubby (who is a newshound by nature) has strict instructions to let me know if we’re going to get annihilated by a rogue meteor… again.
