Trib Review, Nov 8

I was really, really hoping we would talk about the Elections, but to no avail. I haven't had time to really sit and organize my thoughts on them yet, other than that it's been a good year to be a Democrat.

Court reporting. I've kinda had my fill. The Exercise today, God willing, will be the death rattle of this section.

I'm just sick, tired and really want Thanksgiving break to hurry up and get here. I need sleep. I don't care if the clowns will eat me, I need sleep.

Trib Review presentation

Sorry, I wish I had more to say about Amanda's presentation, but I heard a lot of this from my friend Kathleen (I mentioned her last month), and, honestly, I don't like the Trib. Never have, never will. No disrespect to Amanda or the work she did, which was excellent, I just have my own bias against The Trib and anytime I hear their name I automatically associate it with some major BS.

Sorry.

Sonic and a Pizza Chain

I love Hedgehogs. I want one as a pet. I hate Hedgehogs. They ruin the damn news.

Have you ever been in a debate with someone and they have one fact ("I Invented the Internet," "It's hard to put food on your family," "No New Taxe," "I voted for the 87 Million before I voted against it") and they just keep bleating it like a mindless sheep? Yeah, that's the media anymore.

They'll focus on one detail. One Quote. One little thing and make a whole story of it. I hate when people do that because the mind narrows and then all you see are things like that. You focus on the bad, stupid things and ignore the good.

The same could be said, though, for the Foxes in that sometimes the coverage is too broad and too much of the "big picture" that you omit the smaller details and the jigsaw puzzle of life doesn't really fit together without a little persuasive meeting with Mr. Tack-hammer.
