Pretty Big Story

A couple of mornings ago, as I was listenening to the radio in the morning, I was affronted by what is wrong with society. Yes, driving in my car, I realized where everything that is wrong with human nature stems from. One of the morning dumb jockies that theElderSon likes to listen to as I drive him to school, was doing her daily impersonation of a news reporter. In her bit, she broke down news of the wildfires that are raging in Southern California, and she described the tragedy that is currently happening as a "Pretty Big Story".

A story? That is the number one problem with this country, everything is just a story. I would like to go on record to correct the dimb jockey and call her "story" what it really is. A Tragedy.

Just for the record, a story is a piece of fiction written by an author meant to amuse or entertain in one way or another. The word story most likely started being used by the ahole media to unhumanize the event in order to report it. Over time, the worse the tragedy was, the better the "story" is. But let's not forget that what is happening in Southern California is not a story...It is really happening. There really are people that have had to evacuate their homes, leaving all their possessions behind, only to have everything they own burnt to nothing. It's not just a "Pretty Big Story". No you idiot, it's so much more.

Email Post

This is a test.  This is only a test.  Had this been a real post, I may have actually written content that the reader would enjoy reading.  Instead, I'm test sending this from my mobile gmail on my phone.  Please feel free to continue on about the day in an orderly fashion.  Thank you and have a wonderful day, even though the Indians could not clinch the World Series birth last night.
