*A WHOLE NOTHER THING:
A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

On Your Side...
I guess this blog is more and more turning into a critique of local news outlets. Maybe that's because this issue is just on my mind lately. Don't know why.
Today's peeve: TV news that feels it has to go out and investigate the schemers to expose their bad ways-- and then pronounce that they are doing "consumer journalism," whatever that is. Personally, I've started to like KGW's TV news. It just seems like-- the news. No hype. No "On YOUR Side" bs. Just the news.
"Consumer journalism" might make a good 7:00 magazine show, but if the TV station has to go out and manufacture the news for their evening newscast, I just cringe.
