I’m staying at a cheap hotel in Augusta, Georgia these few days, and I take advantage of the free buffet breakfast (the only edible thing here seems to be a bowl of Raisin Bran, and the coffee is terrible), which means, of course, that I sit in a common room with the TV blaring at us. “News”. CNN and Fox. And everyone is running around in circles shrieking about a doctor diagnosed with Ebola in New York.
Jeez, but I have come to hate the 24 hour news networks. I never watch them at home.
Turn off your TV right now and go read Tara Smith’s reasonable discussion of the situation. And sit the fuck down, talking heads at CNN and Fox, and shut the fuck up.
By the way, it was a great relief this morning when some kids came to breakfast, and wiser than their elders, went over to the TV and changed the channel. Why didn’t I think of that? So I finished my Raisin Bran watching Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. That was much better.
Although then I saw this video of a barnacle goose hatchling and saw the too-obvious similarities with the Bugs Bunny cartoon. It falls and falls and falls and bounces and bounces again, yikes.
