Do I have an opinion on OJ? Of course :-)

Today is the 20 year anniversary of the O.J. Simpson trial.   The newscasters were talking about it on CNN.   They were entertaining the question of OJ’s guilt or innocence, and interviewing each other and assorted “experts” on the subject.

Hey, news anchors…how about talking to US?

This thing about being left out during news broadcasts has bugged me for a long time. Some are more blatant than others. These are the choreographed news shows in which there are two anchors: let’s call them George and Mabel. They have correspondents out in the rain…or snow, or hurricane winds, or war zone…just standing there holding onto their microphones and trying to look chic … Continue reading Hey, news anchors…how about talking to US?

OK, I admit that I had no clue where to begin.  So I’ll just follow my own advice and…. begin!  Write something.    Just get the old Muse working with a word, any word.   THE is a word, and the possibilities are endless… the Cat, the Tree, the Suitcase.  Go for it.  Go on… There are always great ideas that pop into my head when I’m driving down the … Continue reading NOW WHAT!!!!
