IST–That Was The Week The Was

Your rundown of the past week……no excuses now…….

In case everyone has been bored and refusing to listen to the news….I thought I would try to start a weekly rundown of news, both critical and absurd…..and with a lot of help from The Cipher Brief……

  1. I do the same thing, most weeks, by setting my new reader (RSS) to collect news from a variety of sources, so I can view the headlines all at once. Saves a lot of heartache over reading it regularly.

The rest of it, by headlines, was all nonsense, or insane, so i skipped it….

    I am too often, these days, reminded of what Scoop, from radio KFOG in SF used to say each morning after giving the new briefs, to wit: “If you don’t like the news, go out & make some of your own.” Always thought that summed it up pretty well….

    Pretty soon, I’m gonna stop opening my mail, too….

    See ya….

  2. We have had a week of the election campaign over here. Polls up and down, endless talking heads on the TV news, televised debates and speeches. And lots of empty promises, let’s not forget those.
    Best wishes, Pete.
