Why O' Why??
Sitting here watching the national nightly news and wondering "why?".
Why does the news anchor, always ask their "expert" questions, that you know are predetermined and vetted? "So John, does this signify a major shift in the administrations policies on Iraq/the economy/abortion/which tastes better, Pepsi or Coke?
And they listen so intently, as if they're actually learning something or give a rats ass, as to what is being said. But you know they already know what the answer will be. because the guy who was asked the question, already knew what the question would be. There is no spontaneity involved. Not even a little.
And what is up with these experts? First of all, what makes them experts? "Now to our senior expert on forest fires." Who mind you, has never, ever been a firefighter. Neither paid or volunteer, just a reporter assigned to cover forest fires. Now they are the "Expert". You can apply this to damn near any category.
Now, when you employ a retired General as your expert on military affairs, then yes, you have an expert on the subject. Unless, he was the head cook and we're discussing the M1A1, it's capabilities and it's future replacements.
As with so many other things, BIG finds this confounding, confusing, convoluted, conflicting and crass, to say the least.Don't Be Afraid To Fail.

thats why i dont have any cable tv
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

That's why I watch Lenny on L&O.
We are the thin blue line
and all the money in the world.
And no you can't have any.
