News sux

I was just flippin' through the "big" news channels and you know what? They suck. Everything is sensationalism and confabulated stories that at any other time we wouldn't give a darn about.

Pres. Bush is at the border, making a show of stopping illegal aliens: About time but the media has to send 10 reps each who has to have an indepth and personal interview with Geo and ask him virtually the same stupid set of questions which they are sure are going to "blow the lid off this case" whatever they think that is. Of course while they "had him on the ropes" (in their own minds) they had to ask him assorted asinine questions about the war in Iraq. BFD.

The Lacrosse rape scandal: how many other violent crimes have occurred across America and the world since that story emerged? But hours a day are given to one incident that is so shady, seamy, tawdry; I can't think of any other adjectives to denote low and disgusting. But I'm sure the media will fill us in on all the vile details if we accidentally turn to CNN, FOX, CNBC, MSNBC or the next one to bubble to the top of the cauldron.

Glenn Beck on CNN was interviewing some propagandist for Libya who was trying to sell us all on how much they have changed. I did get a momentary giggle from that thanks to the movie "South Park, Bigger, Longer and Uncut." That one scene where Saddam Insane is in hell having a homosexual affair with Satan and he does a dance number exclaiming "I Can Change!" popped into my head when I saw Momar Khadaffyduck hugging Hugo Chavez. Momar's attire was pure retro San Francisco with a modern silk turban on top.

The local channel had a brief retrospective on Mt. St. Helens. That was actually sort of news as I had forgotten it was this same time of year. I was in 5th grade in Mr. Stoddard's science class when it happened. Dad was working with my uncle in Colorado at the time and when he washed the ash off his car it was so abrasive that his car was like 2 shades lighter green when he was done.

So much for the national news.

Our ditch is still dry. Last night the deer broke into the pen where I keep my plants and ate about 400$ worth of head lettuce and about 100$ worth of cabbage. Thank you so much department if fish and wildlife; why can't I just shoot the bastards? It is supposed to cool off but today was still a scorcher. Record setting even. Possible thunderstorms tonight which I dread and await with much anticipation. I love thunder and lightning but hate the other evil thing which might fall from the sky during a storm (I'm too superstitious to even type the hated word in, it rhymes with snail and smashes things.)

So much for my local news. Good night and god bless.

  • Yes, I'm so tired of that rape case that seems like it's just a 'news' version of a soap opera. Don't they know that if we wanted to watch soap operas instead of the news then we'd be tuning into Days of Our Lives instead of what is advertised as a "news" station? Sorry about the deer eating your plants. Get a bow (quieter than a gun so not to attract attention) and shoot them anyway. I'm a little grumpy this morning, sorry. I think I woke up on the wrong side of the Universe or something.
