Our Discourse And Friday Word..
Looking at CNNs web page you might think we had something major happen. Apparently it did, former playmate, reality star, married to an Octogenarian (not for the money.. really.. I mean really) Anna Nicole Smith passed away. I am saddened by her passing away, but disturbed and outraged by the non stop media play this story is getting.
There of my colleagues at work are aslot talking about this. Oy!
Even a show I like “Countdown With Keith Olberman” on MSNBC did a story.
Fed up I switched to comedy central to catch a rerun of Jon Stewart skewering the media coverage of the astronaut love triangle. It left me shaking my head at what has become of our media. The best comeback by Jon, I thought was below. It is not verbatim but very close to what got said…
Jon showed a clip of some TV airhead said the astronaut who wore a diaper on her 900 + mile drive was a testament to NASA ingenuity (Link to the story here).
Jon Stewart had one of those great expressions he has when he delivers the punch line…
“My one year old can also crawl around in diapers… ”
Friday Word "Hair"
As per Mona it is hair, my brain was in shutdown mode last night and has not quite woken up. Ya want proof? It’s in the pudding…below.
My head on her shoulders
I looked up her at her kind face
Framed by her brown hair
Shimmering strands in the soft light
Fragrant as the morning dew
She touched my brow
Her touch ..feathery..ethereal
I closed my eyes
To feel a forest of silk
Closing in around me
An aria of love
Whispering its sweet harmony
Rocking me to sleep.
