inmatesrunningasylum (c2000-2050)

Does any other self-identified 'opinionator' exist who yells louder than Bill O'Reilly,is as stupidly insipid as Sean Hannity, as impervious to the truth as Chris Matthews,is as over-bearingly condescending as Nancy Grace,more narcissistic and smarmy than Geraldo Rivera,or more worthless than Connie Chung? Help me hold the collective 'media' feet to the fire, have fun playing w/ words and searching for great websites to blog. Door's open, come on in!!

Name:
Location: California, United States

I run on the beach and no one mistakes me for Bo Derek and I'm proud of that; I walk and explore in the redwood forests while moving banana slugs so they don't get squashed by traffic. Love art, esp.sculpture and/or anything with color;all over the map w/music. Talk back to the television and radio...I still haven't figured out how they get those tiny people into the TV/radio.

A Friendly Former First Lady Speaks Out

The world has been through a lot these past five years. And we all have our opinions of what has happened, is happening and will happen.

However, no one says it like Barbara Bush:

On March 18th, 2002, the day before the "war" began, Mrs. Bush talked with TV host Diane Sawyer on "Good Morning America." She told Sawyer she would watch
none of the war on TV. "Why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many, what day it's gonna [sic] happen. It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

You rock, Barbara!!

This same compassionate, caring former first lady (and I use that word with deep intrepidation)appeared in
Houston, Texas days after the hurricane/flooding disaster along the Gulf Coast. While touring the Houston Astrodome she told a radio reporter, "So many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."

Oh...the compassion, the compassion! Barbara, you make us proud~!

These quotes and so much more are found in the book by the esteemed Frank Rich. Entitled "The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth from 9/11 to Katrina," Rich, a many-years New York Times reporter does what so many mainstream journalists have not. He's paid attention and reported the facts. Copies available wherever books are sold. Thanks, Frank.
