Winter Shade

Fiery crashes. Tragic. Tiger’s demise. Sad. Public lies. You don’t conflate a life-changing event. You remember it in great detail. Taking sniper hits on the tarmac in Somalia. Inventing Vietnam war service and still voted to the Senate. Consequences no longer apply.

Can’t watch television “news”.  Listened to Obama’s whole speech at the Prayer Breakfast. He was funny, spiritual, balanced. Wondered if Foxbots were covering this. Nope, another story criticizing the Prez for something or other. Then, later talking points revolved around the prayer speech saying that a moral equivalence had been made with ancient Christianity and modern evil Islamist extremists. Nothing is further from the truth. Try taking in the entirety of what someone says before slanting. Lazy. Vacuous. Not journalism.

Downton has devolved into “As the Manor Turns”.  Too cold for side trekking. Escape to books this weekend.
