Unfortunately, I don’t have any control what paper to buy in this house, since I don’t pay for it. Thank God for the internet, though. I can choose to read whatever the h8!! I want.
What’s on the newspaper today?
Well, for starters, it features coverage on the activities of the publisher’s wife in who-knows-where. When I turned to the opinion page, the publisher’s regular column was not there, only to be replaced by someone whose middle name is the same as his. I’m pressuming it’s the publisher’s daughter.
No problem, only if she writes well and the topics were worthy of the place where it was. But suffice it to say, it was not. Blabbered about the Rose Bowl and other irrelevant cr@p. (It’s not that I don’t like American football. I love it. But is has no place in the opinion columns, especially in the place it was.) I know bloggers who write better than this. Actually, most, if not all of the bloggers I know write better than this.
Correct me if I’m wrong but in a perfect world, newspapers should be independent of all interest and its editorial board beholden to no one. But who am I kidding. We don’t live in a perfect world, do we?
Anyway, the smart-aleck people would say I have the option of not reading it. Of course I do. And that’s exactly what I’m NOT going to do henceforth.
And you know what else? I’m also going to blog about what I think of these bench-lifting people. That, too, is my right. And they can’t do anything about it since I’m invoking the same right they are.
