One of the prompts for an English 100 essay was violence in the news. Several people have asked what "gave [me] the idea for this." I love Don Henley's song and I was thinking about the prompt and during a free write it hit me: the 5 o'clock news only shows disaster because the audience buys it. So the question became, "If we hate it so much, why do we love watching it?" Here is my take on it. Note: Paragraph 1 on Page 3 should read "California may be a coastal STATE ..." The error calls California a "coastal CITY."
