Priorities, overwhelm and "news"

Afer watching the news I hardly know what to worry about first:

The slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan, where fishermen slash the dolphins' throats with knives or stab them with spears, so that the water turns red with the dolphins blood, and the air fills with their screams.
The child in Afghanistan who painfully learns to walk again after loosing his legs to a landmine
The Iranian president's intention to perpetuate a second Holocaust
The misery in Darfur, where starvation and rape camps are being used to systematically destroy hundreds of thousands of people

Or the work for my job I was avoiding when I turned on the news
