Tuesday Newsday: What Was That About?


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. 

Let's go!:
  • 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.

  1. Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    When Kim boasted she was wearing a "Coco original" I didn't think she meant it was designed by YOUR Coco!

    I've been ranting about Charlie Manson ever since I learned the latest news and saw a picture of the happy couple. Their alleged wedding plans are disturbing on many levels. She is 25 and he is going on 80. She has been visiting him in prison since she was a teenager. She looks a lot like a member of his original "family." Could Manson be grooming her and others to go forth and spread his evil gospel or commit heinous crimes? What motivated this girl to get involved with Manson in the first place? Fame? Media interviews and a book and movie deal? Was she driven by the same morbid fascination that led those two girls to stab their 12 year old friend and leave her in the woods for dead in an effort to please Slender Man? Back to this woman, "Star," the one who is starry eyed over Manson and why their highly publicized romance is so alarming, Stars words and actions add credence to the adage that women prefer bad boys. That's the wrong message to send to impressionable young women and young men who are eager to attract and impress them.

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Cherdo!

    1. I didn't know about "Star" and Manson. That's very sad. I suppose it's impossible to deny him visitors, but it's not wise to allow him to influence anyone.

    2. The Manson thing has bothered me for years, and I wonder why it is impossible to deny him visitors? The last time he mingled with a group of women, it didn't end well (greatly understated).

      Shady: The "Coco" original was the BOMB and I totally agree with everything you stated - but especially the part about women attracted to bad boys. I'll never understand that one.

      Have a great day!

    3. During Manson's trial, didn't the judge have him removed from the courtroom at times? If he could be denied certain "rights" during his trial (if he wasn't there he was denied the right to face his accusers), then I wish he would be denied visitors. Someone who has such a powerful influence over people and has performed heinous acts has given away his rights and privileges. Until I read this post yesterday, I was foolish enough to think that he didn't have visitors.

  2. Here's my armchair psychoanalysis of Kim- she has a baby and she's adding years and the younger gals are going to make her irrelevant. Sex appeal is all she's got and she wants us all to know she's still got it. So much so that she's bursting out of that Glad bag she's wearing.

    The Cosby news breaks my heart. I love him. Say it ain't so!!!

    Missed that Bono news. All I heard about was his plane malfunction.

    Niced remix of the song :)

  4. There are a lot of things that shouldn't make the news but do. I think Kim Kardashian should never be on the news for pulling her stunts to get attention. Why the news reports such things is beyond me.

    1. Amen, Chrys - there's a whole lot of stuff happening in the world that really needs to be front on center...but not this.

  6. I was in shock about the Cosby allegations. They totally ruin my image of him as a good family guy. And Mason? That's just absurd! What is that girl thinking?

    1. I hope the allegations aren't true...then again, I hope all allegations aren't true.

  7. My left knee hurts. Is that news? I've heard allegations against Bill Cosby for many years. He's not mine to judge. but if he has attacked women and they couldn't get help from law enforcement, then that's very disturbing. My knee still hurts, and I'm cold. It's 49 degrees here, and it's supposed to get down to 28 tonight. The world has gone mad!

    Love,
    Janie

    1. WHAT? Why aren't the Florida weather men turning the heat of the state up? What's the use in having weather men if they can't control the weather.

      It's nippy here, too, JJ. I'm sorry your knee hurts and I hope it feels better soon.

    2. My doctor prescribed something to help with the pain, and she's going to send me to a physical therapist. I hope she pays for it, too. It's chilly, but Franklin and I went for a walk this afternoon.

  8. Real news is she's wearing a giant poodle head. Where do they sell those?

    1. If you buy a poodle body, they throw in a free head. It's a good deal unless it barks incessantly.
