Sometimes I just feel totally disconnected. I find myself sitting there thinking, "None of these people are gun owners. None of them have ever worked to actually PRODUCE any of their own foood. Heck, they probably haven't ever climbed a tree without a helmet."

How can they report in a relevant way when they have such a different background?

Wouldn't it be nice to have a news broadcast where your "type" of person was represented?

I just about lost my cookies when the guy with the pink tie said,

[lisp] And now *gasp* we have reporths of *gasp* THSREE *gasp* FOOT *gasp* TSHARKS *gasp* TSWIMMING IN THE TSTREETS!! AHH! [/lisp]

I dunno, maybe I'm off. Too bad we we don't have ARFCOM news (by arfcommers, for arfcommers). I'd buy the next bigger sattellite package to get that.

Most arfcomer's ideal reporter would be an over weight white guy who loved flannel shirts

ETA: Oh yeah he would also say such things as "id hit it" at the most inappropriate times.

I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry --

All I'm saying is that I don't really feel represented. I find myself thinking, "I'm counting on THESE GUYS to relay information to me that I find relevant??"

I guess that's why I come here when I want to hear what's going on in the world.

None of them have ever worked to actually PRODUCE any of their own foood


I guess I am disconnected to...I do not hunt and kill and clean everything I take in. I do not own a farm to grow the things I do not kill.

I am a bad person.

The "News" we get today is all about generating money and ratings. Network and Cable news rely on stories, angles, and the delivery of it to manipulate the SHEEPLE in the country.

Right, that's exactly what I said. All city folk are bad.

That's stupid.

You don't hunt, you don't farm, and apparently you don't "kill" (Ever step on an ant? Eat any fruits or vegetables? *gasp* USE WEED KILLER??). All that means is that we don't have the same experiences and we don't see events from the same perspective. If you couldn't understand that, then I don't have anything else to say.

This is why the cable and network news are becoming more and more irrelevant.

You can usually find a blogger that lives in the area you are interested in, with the expertise to speak intelligently on the topics they find interesting.

viva la internet

I doubt it was a tiger shark. Probably a nice size black tip.

BYW, that is exactly what NO needs. The sharks and catfish will clean up the dead animals (pets, etc).

On Fox and Friends this very AM, Steve Ducey said the corps of engineers was dropping by giant helecopters 15,000 ton concrete barricades to stop the flow across the breached levees.

Damn. I mean just, Damn. Really?

I think your case is made. Whats sad is very few people would realize the folly of his comments.

That's the kind of thing I'm talking about.

People at home are going, "holy crap, that's big!". He could've said 15,000 grams and people would've been just as amazed.
