Right? The writing on Newsroom is very good.

I'm going to stay away from Mad Men b/c it does sound like something I'd like and then I'll be hooked...

It does, and then it gets worse. I forget which season I quit watching after.

It wasn't horrible, I was just trying to juggle too many shows.

Eating ham steak and broccoli with cheese and bacon bits. Wondering of the ham steak pig and the bacon bits pig were related.

I'm watching Tosh.0. I love this show.

The world champion in the category of "natural largest boobs" was on, and tosh was on a speed boat with her and motorboated her boobs. Nick would nearly pee his pants laughing if he saw that.

Me, too. What helped me quit watching (same point, half way through 2nd season) was logging into forums when I got curious to see what I could find out about the show that I wasn't following or understanding, and man, people geeked out on that show! I didn't want to watch something where I had to take notes to figure out what was going on.

This story made me cry at my desk at work:

I'm babysitting 1.5 year old Hazel tonight (and her almost-3 sister Rory!).

Two year olds shouldn't get cancer, damnit!

Where's the CHICAGO (local) media attention? I don't see any of this on the front page of the Chicago Tribune.

Check the Trib in the morning. They have a box with overnight shootings and homicides. The SunTimes has a whole section on its front webpage called Homicides.

Without diminishing teh imporance, teh severity should also be assessed based on teh amount of publicity. If we had 20 weekend shootings and 3 homicides and it was not front page news half the people and especially the non- Chicago people would not think twice.

Ten years ago or so ( maybe as longer as May 1988 after the Laurie Dann shootings) there was outrage that so much press was given to white kids who were hot and so little given to black kids. Then the outrage went to missing cute white girls and no one else. The major Chicago news sites did start front page articles about all kids who were reported missing; there is almost never a report on resolution.

What does the local media attention have to do with that pig sharfpton and his rabid tirades? Why is he not lamenting those people who died? Oh, right, no controversy, so no money.

My only point was, why should someone like Sharpton make a stink (isn't he based in NYC?) when the locals aren't even bothering?

I just googled Sharpton to verify that he's from NYC (he is)-- have you seen him lately? He's lost a lot of weight and got a younger girlfriend.

That is horrendous. What happened to the law and due process and all that stuff? Since when does an angry mob get to decide what happens?
