What happened while I wasn't writing?:
Mr. Jefferson (Sherman Hemsley) passed away. Wow, I used to watch that show. George Jefferson was hilarious. R.I.P Mr. Hemsley.
A . At some point, I would like to get to the bottom of that horrific incident. James Holmes was described as a meek and polite loner.
Isn't it intertesting that Rupert Murdoch resigned from the boards of several of his UK media organizations a day before charges came down on eight staff of his Bristish empire, News of the World? One of those charged was described as a one-time confidante of the media mogul.
As an aside, don't you think the media (present company being one of the few exceptions) is way out of control? Hacking phones is probably just what we have been able to find out. Even mainline media, like the once proud CNN, pursues sensationlistic "news" like a jackal on the hunt. Investigative journalism is no more than finding the latest dirt on someone famous.
Then there is the over the Internet about how to eat babies. And all the time, the Pinellas County madman meekly goes to church, obligingly transports youths to outings and entertains children of his nightmares with his puppets. Creepy and chilling!
What do these madmen have in common? Beneath every sanctimonious hypocrite lies an evil heart.
Has our morality dwindled this far or is this just the media selectively titilating us with incidents from the underbelly of society? Maybe a bit of both.
Sheesh! Maybe we should stop reading and listening to the news for a while. It's really depressing. This perhaps will be a step in the direction of regaining a moral foothold.
OK - I'll write about happier thoughts in my next blog.
