I don't come to LJ to read about the daily news. I don't come to LJ to be depressed about the futility of the human existance en masse. I come to LJ to read about the thoughts, activities, musings, discoveries, tragedies, and joys in other lives to which I feel connection or in which I have interest.
So I revamped my friendslist again. While going through the list, I discovered some people had friended me who have good brain. Some people who hadn't posted in a long time, or only post politics/re-tweets/video links are now off of the list.
