haven't we suffered enough?

'No news is good news' is a terribly flawed statement. Perhaps, nothing bad has happened anywhere on any scale, and there are no dogs playing Rachmaninoff with their tails, or old people complaining, and so all news casters have unanimously decided to take the night off.

Or perhaps, conversely (and more probably) a freak lightning storm has shot the tower and subsequently killed all who were around and underneath it in a gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, agonising way. So perhaps no news is really horrible news and we are doomed to negativity and pain whichever way we go Perhaps its best to pretend that no news is good news and live ignorant, happy and damp, under a large rock.
