Rex Smith stated that governments have adopted a phrase to combat domestic terrorism: “If you see something, say something” (“Where NRA’s LaPierre is on target,” in a column in Saturday’s Sun). I appreciated his example of a gym member who asked that the steady diet of violent, bloody movies on some of the gym TVs be changed to something less violent that day. The gym officials decided to keep the upbeat change.

I found a way to lighten up everyday lives, too. After passively watching the main news channel offered at our gym for the past four years, I realized that it was time to try to change the biased news “climate.” Now each time I go to the gym, if the popular prophecy-of-doom cable channel (Fox News) is on, I request that one of the other TVs be changed to CNN or MSNBC.
