Oxymoron: Reality TV

Most importantly it is imperative that those us us in relatively secure positions are compelled to aid those most vulnerable.  We all know who these people are.  That is the way to be compassionate and do the right thing.  That is how we fulfill the promise of our revolution.

One of the big reasons we find ourselves in this nightmare circumstance is that many people do not understand that there is a difference between reality and television.  The entertainment divisions of networks have taken precedence over the news which used to be "fair and balanced."

Walter Cronkite is spinning in his grave.

"Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don't wear sandals
Try to avoid scandals.
Don't want to be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don't work
'Cause the vandals took the handle"

A prophecy by B. Dylan
