You would think


With all the issues, problems and happenings in the world today, with the economy, environment and political issues, like Honduras for example, the US media would spend a little more time, just a tad, on covering issues instead of 24 hour coverage of the death of Michael Jackson....
Come on......does it warrant cancellations of tv shows, full programming to dissect every nuance of the event.
Showing the ambulance,
The house,
The location of the house, and please pray tell me what Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton have to get their faces plastered on the screen for countless hours.....
Tell us that the power is shut off in Tegucigalpa so that no news escapes and is controlled for some time. Tell us of the interaction that Chavez and Castro have with the ousted president Mel.

Tell us that store shelves are empty there because people are scared of reaction.

Tell us of the Korean situation and the possibility of a powder keg of a country that has nothing to lose of sacrificing their population to the some basket case of a dictator and the impacts it can have to the rest of the world....

But no, we need to hear that MJ was financially bankrupt and that the effects of Demerol have on cardiac arrest.....hey the lab work isn't done yet and really isn't that a family issue?

So now that Billy Mays is dead, maybe that will take some of the news footage away from the recap of MJ......Wouldn't it be odd that they find out that Oxyclean has some toxic fumes that caused his premature demise....
Anyway, I just cant believe what the stuff that is showing on the screen.....Thank God there is a channel selector and a on off switch......reading and listening to the music is so much better you get stuff done, while you're not glued to the screen......

Well, back to reading and a nice tall glass of sun tea.....

Now you can go back to watching the news about Michael Jackson, and go dig out the CD's of his music!

It's a night light that has noise coming out of it! Then changes colors.

I like the night light idea! Since the Lawrence Welk show is not available on the internet, I still have to have my TV.

Who is Michael Jackson?

Constantino said...

Felipe, Michael Jackson is the entertainer who was born black and became a white entertainer through modern chemistry and plastic surgery.
He is also the one who built a multi million dollar children magnet, with a amusement park at his ranch, to attract under age children....

At least Billy Mays was entertaining.

Hang in there. These are difficult and trying times. We know how affected you are by the tragic, senseless, untimely death of Michael Jackson, but you'll get through it. Be strong.

I bet Macaulay Culkin had something to do with it.

Constantino said...

Actually I heard that Michael is still alive and just switch bodies with his departed sister Janet Or Janis whatever her name is.....
