Quick Poll: Are you getting burned out on bad news?

It seems to me that we're starting to get burned out on the constant stream of bad or depressing news.  I've noticed a change on the thread topics in the last few days (Things I'll cherish after TSHTF, Humor Thread, In need of comport and inspiration, etc.).  It does mess with my mind knowing the economy is crumbling around me and others are going on blissfully unaware.  At times I find myself needing to take a break from all the news so I can sleep at night.  I'm guessing than all this bad news is getting to more people than just me, right?
