Everyday we are surrounded with “News”. Morning News, Noon News, Evening News, the 11 o’clock News. And that’s only network television. There are cable channels devoted to 24/7 News. If you don’t have a TV, you can get News Talk radio in your car.
If you don’t watch or read the news, the News will find you. Hubby reads the paper on weekend mornings. Hubby will say, “listen to this!”, and then summarize the article for me. I enjoy this for the most part, but some of the News stories he passes along to me, disgust or outrage him enough to get riled up and on his soapbox. This man used to be easy-going. Has he changed or is it the News?
It amazes me what passes for News these days.
This is why I am starting a new category at Not Pretending: This Could Be News. I am not going to be reporting or commenting on the News because, well, you can get that anywhere. Not Pretending will be reporting on the possible News in the nearby future.
This Could be News is total fiction, meant only for our mutual entertainment. If you don’t like silliness, feel free to ignore this category. And BTW, if you don’t like silliness, what are you doing here??
