This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Get Me Out of Here!
Politics has been pretty slow now that the vultures of the newsmedia have descended on the Pope. Its at times like these, that some worldwide event is eating up the airwaves, that I often wonder, what minor story would we otherwise be fixated upon if it wasn't for this? Are there station managers who can't get to sleep at night because they can't decide whether to lead with a dead pope or a freakazoid singer on trial for child molestation?

"Why, oh why, did the Pope have to die in the middle of the Jackson Trial?"

You know, at least it didn't happen while the vegetative women was still alive, or else some CNN or Fox News exec might have been tempted to kill her themselves. Because, let's face it, no matter how compelling the story of TS was to many people, it was filler.

It was baby down the well, it was husband kills pregnant wife, it was baseball player takes steriods to look like the incredible hulk, it was celebrity kills someone... whoever.

There always has to be something happening in the "news" world. If nothing newsworthy is ongoing they start digging up whatever they can find; killings, celebrities... anything that will keep people glued to their TV's.

Wouldn't it be nice to turn on the news one night and have the anchor say "Tonight, we were going to bring you a story about a horribly obese women who was crane-lifted out of her roach-infested house but then we realized, 'That's just tacky!' So instead we will be cutting our broadcast short to make room for more paid programming from SMC"?

Maybe not.

Maybe Jerry Mander was right. Maybe its just the medium that is the problem?

Here's an idea for a news story; OIL -- Its going to run out. Maybe we could do a voice over while they play footage of the crane-lifting?
