    Question 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.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    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
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    True journalism is dead - at least where ratings matter more then truth.
