Enough about The Guy Who Died

The other night I was channel surfing and came across a BBC news show and man, it was such a pleasure. News like it used to be. It was mostly reporting, little opinion, no debate. No comments from people who are completely biased and predictable and add absolutely nothing. They covered an array of subjects from all over the world. The anchors were more subdued, less “personality.” It was like news for grown-ups.

I looked around to see if there was any kind of 24 hour news channel for the BBC, but I didn’t find one. This is what I need though. I have absolutely had it with all the 24 hour news shows here.

Two hours later: I started writing that post and then got caught up in this that and the other thing!  So much to do.  I want to run back down to the Municipal Archives.  I forgot to go up to the 7th floor to see what was there.

This is Grace Church, where I sing. I took this the other night walking home from the Loser’s Lounge.

  1. We are immensely proud of our BBC in every possible way. It’s part of the British psyche and it is not a nakedly commercial entity. It was founded on important principles and they are still its foundation today. I think you are right in that the US has no equivalent.

  2. I can’t take this non-stop Michael Jackson stuff, for the love of god, stop stop stop. And if you’re going to talk about him talk the discussion should be about mental illness.

    I liked the cat story, thanks.
