Note to self:

Stop asking for a pony. It's obvious no one is going to take me seriously. Ever. Merry Christmas.

Is anyone else frustrated with the state of television news?

First I admit that I have an insatiable interest in world affairs.  After many years of watching the demise of U.S. News broadcasts I'm finding it more difficult every day to get a half-way decent idea of what's going on on this planet.

I'll also admit that I believe (based on overwhelming evidence) that any news that is delivered to us is biased, censored, and edited to fit the time allotted. It's like watching Casey Kasem do the top 10 countdown - please note: Casey and team considered record sales and music charts to reflect the desires of his audience - I would love to meet the folks that pick our national news stories. 

There are about a dozen ongoing armed conflicts in the world today that result in 1,000 or more casualties annually. Some of those numbers reach into the millions.  Where is that covered? 

I've been forced to shift my news sources offshore. Foreign news sites and broadcasts have become a daily staple for me. Sure, they're biased - so I keep chasing the news across the web and streams until I can gather enough information to at least know what is happening (the WHY is a bit more complicated).  

It really shouldn't be this hard. 





Time for a Makeover

I've been ignoring this site out of sheer frustration. Tech blogs are plentiful, Fair use dump sites abound, maybe I can get my thoughts together and present something with some substance. We will see.

This cannot be happening.

Catwoman. The Batman Catwoman, not the 2004 Halle Berry flick. It's been done. Now we want to cast Anne Hathaway in the role? Julie Newmar, Ertha Kitt, now who?
