Neil Postman said it best “I raise no objection to TVs junk. The best things on television are its junk, and no one and nothing is seriously threatened by it. Besides, we don’t measure a culture by its output of undisguised trivialities but by what it claims as significant”. In that vein, I do not suppose that all that I will be posting here on this blog is significant. It is fun, somewhat trivial, and amusing, but it is just junk. I feel that most of what we call news today is irrelevant to the majority of people. We watch out of morbid curiosity. In the long run, what we see does not affect us or those around us. I hope this blog will be a source of entertainment for those watching and also maybe give a sense that the “daily newscast” as we know it does have something that is of entertaining value if not of cultural value to us.
