This week has had it share of bad news, good news and frustrating news. I'm not going to address any of that, of course.
Tuesday Newsday is all about the news that should never be reported in the first place.
- I don't understand the whole "Kim Kardashian Breaks the Internet" thing this week. The internet is fine. Having seen the picture, I think Kim cracked the internet. Isn't this the same girl who was upset that certain unsavory videos were released a few years ago? These recent pictures aren't really a step up. Really, what was that about?
- Charles Manson is getting married. Charles MANSON is getting married. This nut killed people, ruined lives, lived in his own psychosis and was practically homeless by the time he was finally put in the slammer. Jail has to be a step up, abode-wise. He has a roof over his head, inmates are probably steering clear for fear the megalomania is contagious, he can count on a food daily, occasional press and now...he can get married. Doesn't that girl have parents or at least a case manager? On the day they first locked him up, I think the courts and the press should have joined together and made a pact that they would never speak his name or write about him again. That would be the worst punishment in the world for Charles Manson, the guy who loves the sound of his own voice and lives to make others believe his bunk. I guess there's one left who did - and she's getting hitched! What is that about?
- Bill Cosby, what is up with you this week? The reports of bad behavior keep on popping up. Giving folks the benefit of the doubt is my modus operandi, but the number of complaints have caused me to take a stand. Now I have to boycott Jello pudding in my house, and we don't like any of the other puddings nearly as much. You may be the person who most impacts my diet. Bill, Bill, Bill...what is that about?
- Bono fell and injured his arm in Central Park. That was news? Hey, I don't wish him any ill, but that was on CNN? I stubbed my toe pretty bad...news at 11:00 p.m. (It was so tempting to link "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" and so hard to resist. Maybe I'll just brush up the lyrics. Everyone, sing along...)
I can't believe the news today
Why did he close his eyes
And just peddle away?
How long, How long will he peddle so wrong
So long so wrong
Cause tonight, Bono wrecked his bike...Tonight
Broken bottles under children's feet
Joggers pass him by like they don't see!
But they won't heed the biker's call
It's like the whole park
Came to see poor Bono fall.
Sunday, Boo-boo Sunday
Should have made it a "run" day
Sunday, Boo-boo Sunday
I've got an extra "get well soon" card if you want to sign it.
