Informational Work Paralysis

They shouldn’t let me near the Internet. There’s just so much good stuff out there that I get Informational Work Paralysis. To put it bluntly: my need to inhale information supersedes all other concerns, and my work thus suffers.
Seriously. The Wall Street Journal and Gamespot need to start charging to let people read their opinions in full, if only for my career’s sake. Little Green Footballs should go, too, along with Instapundit, NRO, etc.
How can I possibly code Perl when the War With Iraq is being planned and endlessly opined about?
