By now, you might have heard of the "incidents" in London, two weeks to the day when the version of 9/11 hit. Now, this is nowhere near THAT. Small explosions, bus windows blown out but no one hurt, ONE injury somewhere else, and no rush hour traffic. Kath has some interesting commentary. Scary to think I agree with another blogger, but I do. On second item, at any rate. Yes, there are those who disagree with Blair, and doubly hate the fact Iraq happened. But I also believe Iraq for what is happening in London is a weak excuse. Seems to me enough potential troublemakers exist for them to think for themselves. No, this is not the fault of ALL muslims. Most of them are horrified at the current state of affairs.I t always amazes me what those in news professions consider news. Bush speaks to a group? Live coverage. Forget about reporters whose job it is to cover, then report later. Tell people you have nothing to tell them, so don't ask? Call a press conference. Jackson gets arraigned? Put hours of coverage on when the biggest item is only about ten minutes. Saddam Hussein appears in court? spend hours covering when the few minutes he spoke would suffice.
A couple of tidbits: Nice to see Bill Hemmer back on the air. Note to writers: he was not "dumped", he chose to leave CNN. There's a difference. Not all that fond of FOX, but may have to take a peek. Hemmer's cute-PEOPLE once made him a Sexiest Bachelor. He supposedly makes a mean teriyaki salmon. (not that I know personally)
Some dignbat commenters at Blogcritics named Tucker Carlson a "gay icon". Er, how? The man is married with a passel of offspring. The bow tie works, btw.
