It’s not that I haven’t wanted to post, but it’s like what I heard on ESPN radio this morning. The announcers were breaking to cover the announcement of the 2012 Olympic site, and one of them said something about the fact that all the TV news stations were covering it. His comment was something along the lines of “This is the biggest thing in the history of the world.”
There’s a whole lot of nothing going on, but here’s my quick thoughts:
- Child kidnappings are awful, and the criminals deserve the death penalty. We must start looking at the cause rather than treating at the end. How much pornography did this latest kidnapper have? How was his home life? Are we feeding this behavior in the name of “free speech.”
- Sandra Day O’Conner needed to go. There are a few others that need to go also. Better yet, I’d like to see Congress limit the ruling ability of the judiciary so that it dictates the rules, not the bench.
- When it’s a slow news day, people should say such, instead of giving us 15 stories of a pregnant Britney Spears or how Paris Hilton wants to get married in Westminster Abbey, but can’t because she’s not royalty. This is the time when they should be doing more stories about progress in Iraq, UN corruption, problems in Africa, etc. There are plenty of newsworthy stories out there that don’t require us going after people who just crave attention.
That’s it for now. I’ll let you know if I find something that’s worth posting.
