TV Can Be Illuminating


Can you imagine that human beings can be so uninformed that they would actually eat vomit?

Many people willingly do eat vomit... often. And they enjoy eating it. They revel in it; they pay high prices for it at their local supermarket.

You doubt this?

Watch the following video:

I was disappointed this morning when George Will was absent from The Round Table on ABC's this week Sunday morning TV news show... Michael Gerson was okay, as were the two old has-been entertainers, Cokie Roberts and Sam Donaldson but none of them comes up to the common sense reportage of George Will. The interview with Colin Powell was (to me) uninspired. The interview with Matt Damon about his work to provide clean water to those who do not have it was inspiring.


I believe that most people believe the word disingenuous is a politically correct synonym for liar. But actually, the definition is: disingenuous: Not candid or sincere, typically by pretending that one knows less about something than one really does.

Not quite the same thing.

For some reason, the word disingenuous reminds me of Senator Chuck Schumer, who, by the way, is extremely fond of using the word very.

My new Journal is not ready yet. Only the opening page exists at this time, but it is not to be a daily journal. It takes me more than one day to put my serious thoughts into intelligible words. And I have no previously written postings to fall back on. When it is ready, it will be there.
