News Radio

I have a Sirius radio and most mornings I listen to Howard Stern on the way to work. It is a nice way to start the day, a few laughs and some nonsense. If he goes overboard and on occasion he does, I switch over to music.

Mr. Stern is on vacation and this morning I tuned into WBZ 1030 our regional news powerhouse. It was a giant mistake, the world is crumbling around us. I knew it was bad but schucks, I didn't realize it was that bad. Awful words are repeated over and over, words like wounded, casualties, dead, killed, suicide bomber, IED improvised explosive device, I bet you knew what IED stands for, civil war, sabotage, skirmish, fire fight, missile attack, innocent civilians, not so bad but when attached to killed and maimed, not so good.

Places in the news that come up over and over, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Israel. I wonder what has happened to North Korea, no report about them, maybe George and Condoleezza talked them out of their nuclear aspirations.

After 9/11 the talk was only of the Taliban, who I guess are back on the rise, and Afghanistan. The violence is spreading like a cold through preschool. When and where will it stop? What is the end game? Only time will tell.

"Schucks," haven't heard that in a while. :-)

I don't think we want to know what the end game is, too scary. Too many angry people out there. Perhaps they need to read your last blog.
