    Nothin, just generally annoyed at every other channel having every other word be "9/11". The funny thing is, I saw a field of empty chairs today, and that moved me more than 300 documentarys have.

    I'm just fed up with these a-holes. Ever hear of West Nile Virus? The statistics against it claiming more than 20 vistims this year are staggering, yet every channel that mentions it acts like it's the next aids epidemic being carried by every mosquito on earth.

    I get irritated watching retarded news talk shows interviewing 9/11 victims/survivors, when the host has to get her name in there a dozen times.

    Don Henley said it best. "We love dirty laundry".

    Whoops, gotta run, Ashley Banfield is in somalia right now.

    And yes, triumph is pretty friggin funny!!

    Hell - that's ALL we've been hearing (or reading) down here for the last three weeks!
    For cryin' out loud - GET A GRIP !!!!!!!! Only really OLD FRAIL people and real little
    SICKLY KIDS can gt it ! Alright already!!! The chances of getting it are about as remote
    as getting Lyme Disease. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    But I hear ya on the media - a band from the eighties called The Talking Heads had
    an album (a 12" circular plastic disc used for mass reproducing recorded music) called
    "Stop Making Sense" - hit the nail on the head with that one! So did Don Henley!

    Found this by accident!! I was looking at Ollie Norths book at Amazon, and this was 3 or 4 "if you like this book, you'll love.." books down from it.

    Hey Jack, glad to hear about the gears! You forgot to call me back last month, dude! I wanted to pick your brain for gun info!! BTW, I'll be crackin' a mike iced tea in about five minutes, then kicking back and watching some MSNBC or Fox News...

    Here is my best attemp to quote what the media told us about a local story you probably heard about, but won't get into it here....

    "We will not speculate what the FBI is looking for, but speculation is that they will be digging up the concrete slab".

    IN THE SAME SENTANCE GUYS!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!

    Hmph. CNN this moring asked "What's your opinion of how the media is handling 9/11?" The first email called them vipers or vultures or something, the next said 2 weeks of programming on every channel wasn't necessary, then the next was frm the anchors wife saying she still liked seeing all the coverage. There was one email asking how many times they planned to replay the disaster, and the answer was 3 times, I'll admit I'm impressed at that.

    I'm a little burnt on being pissed, now I'm just tired of it.

    POPULAR news media and modern reporting SUCKS

    BUT there is good stuff out there, you've just gotta look past the papers and especially network/major cable news programs...
