Have some pity on the poor media today, folks...
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 06:05 PM by SoCalDem
Today they actually have to choose news.. They have had to shelve their old tried-and-true favorites..

sharks
missing blonde girls/women
antics of our cute president
"mistreatment" of Poor journalists
theatre box office receipts
hurricanes (their Dennis the Menace graphics are going awastin')

edited to add... :sarcasm:...Dennis is a HUGE story here, and should not be "back-paged"..

On it's present track I'm right in the middle of it. Just finished doing all the repairs from Ivan. Just because it isnt news to you doesnt mean it isnt for someone else.

grasp of balance..They simply overdose on whatever the BIG NEWS is on any given day, and will sit around for HOURS asking each other to repeat what they just said 10 minutes ago...or ask the same questions in 50 different ways, after they have been told that there is no answer forthcoming..

I left out the :sarcasm:.. my fault



I AM very worried about Dennis.. Stay safe :hug:
