A test – leftover bits

Will the type go wonky? The comments be turned off? I’ve recently made appointments that the office in question had no record of and ordered a book that never came and when hunted down does not appear to have been ordered. My drugstore doesn’t answer the phone anymore.

It’s not just WordPress, in other words.

This photo of a flag adorned shack was the prompt in the writing class I take on Thursday.

I went dystopian — to a place where only the super rich have access to fresh food and where it is illegal to possess a flag without also possessing a gun. I’ll spare you.

      Agreed. Not sure why the press has drawn conclusions when we don’t know murkowski’s vote or what Roberts would do in the case of a tie. I wrote a post card to Roberts. hA. If it makes me feel better somehow it’s worth the cost of a stamp.

        This is why I watch the media rather than bird-dogging all the political intricacies. One shapes the specific parameters of thinking minds. The other shapes how the world turns.

        think we know by now which is which …

          I don’t quite understand your comment? The only way I know political intricacies is through the media … I just talked with someone today who talked about how she can’t listen to the news because that’s too direct. She needs to read it. I favor a couple of tv programs and podcasts and the short stuff that is immediate and raw in Twitter. Almost no newspapers, but Washington Post online

    Oh shit dee I wasn’t commenting on you – I was commenting really on the difference between substance (which is of course what many of us seek through the media – how else to attain it.) and flare (which is so much of this COMPLICITY tune-in-tomorrow hype machine. playing right into the hands of it. This infuriates me and I spend so much time fuming over it here and there throughout my day that I forget everybody else isn’t there in my head fuming right along with me.

    I’m sorry I created confusion. I’m just so disgusted with the way the free press has been distorted and diminished as well as being demeaned unfairly and having a terrifying target painted repeatedly on their heads, homes and families. It’s frustrating to witness that, perhaps in order to quite literally survive, more and more seem to be actively morphing into carnival barkers.

      I didn’t take your comment personally at all — I just truly didn’t get it. Now I get it. Thanks for taking the time to explain. The press is so complicit in a lot of this it’s enraging. And now we have to watch how misogyny governs coverage of our presidential candidates, too. Sickening.

      I’ll tell ya, I sit in my car at lunch…listening, and believing that most of my co-workers don’t even know what is going on. Frustrating!

        It is very hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that so so much of America isn’t following along.

          Yes which is why some have suggested that Bloomberg buy Fox News. A big part of the problem.

    I prefer reading news also- then I can backtrack if something seems ‘odd”. I have not been impressed with our chief justice but the guy giving the blessing at the start- I like him, a lot.

      As for potted-plant-Chief Justice — ugh. I just read someone’s speculation that Murkowski voted NO on witnesses to spare him having to take a stand. Pathetic.
