Tired of the 24-Hour News Cycle

I must confess something. I do appreciate the fact that the Internet can bring us obscene amounts of information in just a couple seconds. For example, I can't imagine doing legal research without Internet databases. Looking up every case by hand would be brain-numbing and a waste of time.

The dark side of the information superhighway, though, is that most news stories last only a few hours. To compensate for our short attention span, the news media just flood us with more and more information. I simply cannot keep up with the news media.

That's where the 1783 edition of The Onion comes in handy.
