Here’s one:  Call to Wings.

As I was browsing, I found this: Sword In The Thatch: Key graf:

Just ’cause it might sometimes, very rarely, when all other avenues are exhausted – be right (or at least, “least bad of a host of bad options”) – that doesn’t mean it comes cheap. That price is darned high, and Mr. Mitty can keep his fantasies. Bleck.

And this: from 2008, The Year I Stopped Believing:

From supposedly apolitical New Year’s Eve broadcasts of the ball drop, filled with gushing announcers going on about how everything will be different now, to the outright character assassination of Gov. Palin.. the bold-faced one-sidedness of self-professed professional, neutral media outlets was breathtaking.

  1. Welcome to my world… I have not believed a “news” broadcast in a long time… It is no longer news, it’s “infotainment” with THEIR preconceptions coloring they reporting. If you want a real perspective, read something like Pravda, the Washington Compost, then SF Chronicle and the St. Louis Post Dispatch on the same event and look at the differences, then watch the “news”… All will have a grain of truth, but the reporting will be MUCH different.

    As usual Coroner your humor is refreshing and naturally whimsical.
