Random Assassination

RANDOMLY watching late local news on US station (WDIV 4 NBC) and they're character-assassinating some senator called Monica Conyers?!

It's wild to watch it happening real-time. They're using a tone of voice that sounds like CSI agents... the reporters sound disgusted just talking about her... And she's going to jail!

BUT, watching their evidence for 12 straight minutes (forever on modern TV media) , I am still confused as to what Conyers had done..?

And where are these Dirty News pieces on all the billionaire CEOs who daily do all the things that they showed Conyers doing and worse!

This Is What We're Separated For?!

I'm sure many of you harbour secret and growing dread about our so-called public education system. I know I do.

First, it seems that the schools cannot make a distinction between reality and movies - with most schools' denizens hell-bent on trying to recreate the social scenes portrayed in Pretty In Pink or DeGrassi High. Or The Hills. And it's not just the students - teachers and administrators buy into this, "popular/unpopular kid" model and thus reinforce it!

War: Then and Now

What do you rememeber of advertisements from the war in the 40s? How do they compare to advertisemenets in wartime now? What effect do they have on our outlook as a country? How could this effect (if any) be used to influence - even control - the path a country takes, domestically and internationaly?
