The News

I'm playing Bejeweled (whose URL I will refrain from posting in case Emma reads this) online and Joe has 60 Minutes on in the parlor because there's supposed to be a segment about the ivory-billed woodpecker. Slowly it dawns on me what sounds familiar. Maybe it's a property of age and maybe I'm just getting jaded. The TV news has turned into Old Blevins.

Bla bla blabla blabla bla blah terrorist attack
Bla bla bla bla blabla blabla bla blah recent statement
Bla bla bla blabla blabla bla blah families
Bla bla blahhh... national standards

Etc. My god it's half boilerplate. A person with a total vocabulary of 250 words could get it all, and I'm including state names in that.

No ivory-billed woodpecker yet.

(Ref: The Austin Lounge Lizards. Go get some.)

Bla bla blabla blabla blah on the issues...
