Charlotte the latest scene of violence in the United States

I am spending tonight watching the news from Charlotte of the second night of violence there following another deadly police shooting incident in the United States. 

In other news, there was another shooting in Tulsa by police, of a black man. All in all, this is depressing stuff to watch — yet I cannot wean myself off the news cycle.

I ought to be spending tonight tuning into baseball or hockey games, or better yet, watching the new fall shows on TV. I had been working basically nonstop the last three days and really do need a break. Yet here I am watching the depressing news. Again.
