Rather than dwell on the bad stuff, let's focus on the positive. New U2 album is coming. Rolling Stone is saying good things:
This is grandiose music from grandiose men, sweatlessly confident in the execution of their duties. Hardly any of the eleven songs break the five-minute mark or stray from the punchy formula of All That You Can't Leave Behind. They've gotten over their midcareer anxiety about whether they're cool enough. Now, they just hand it to the Edge and let it rip.
Any other ideas on thing to keep your mind off of current events?
