It’s a boring morning when you turn on the a.m.news and old snow scenes from prior years are flashed like ‘red alerts’ The talk is the possibility of 2-3 inches of snow. For northerners, that’s a spit in a very shallow bucket. While we shouldn’t wish for real ‘news’, the lack of national or international events leaves us with hours of nothing but the drone of these newscasters who have nothing to talk about. A strange habit for humans, it seems, is to listen, wait to hear the ‘exciting’ news…that’s why we get those mindless feeders thrown out to us in the form of ‘coming up next’. Of course, the fix is to turn off the ‘news’. Long term what really needs to be done, so everyone can get back to a healthy, rational dialogue, is to curtail these broadcasts. When ‘news’ isn’t invented, discussions on real issues might be helpful, meaningful. Writers love to enhance reality…and should stretch the readers imagination in every direction. I try. The question is why do ‘news broadcasters-reporters’ too often create fiction? Sensationalize the most boring, insignificant events or pending events. So I’ve turned it off. When will I be pulled in again?Good thoughts…changes coming, sun is shining. A long way from spring but my character has seen the light, ready to make a broad leap. Good thoughts, cheers, Wil.
