This Just In: Enough!

Who is skinny

Who can’t lose weight

Who refuses to eat

Who is sleeping around

Who is newly married

Who has a tattoo

Who “rocked” a new look on the red carpet

If Brad and Angelina will marry

If Oprah is gaining or losing weight

If Rosie is teetering on depression

If one of the bakers or cooks forgot the yeast and now the soufflé won’t rise

Mitt’s tax returns

Obama’s smoking habit

Newt’s closet obnoxiousness

The latest facelift

The newest overdose


Please, on the next snow day, take your kids sledding. Bring cocoa, light a fire in the firebox and laugh out loud.

Go down the hill at least once.

Create some memories with your lives and the ones you affect, for crying out loud. This stuff can only penetrate your kids if you let them remain exposed to it.

Please, America, take the higher road. We’re better than this.

    I would be overjoyed if the media went back to printing true, well researched and documented news. The days of verification by “three independent sources” are long gone and rumor and innuendo prevail. How I miss Walter Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley, Ed Bradley and others who reported what they witnessed without inserting opinions, unless it was an editorial piece.

    Most “newsmakers” now are unworthy of print. Good deeds are relegated to the back of a paper with an inch of coverage. An untalented person who “bares all/tells all” makes the headlines for “skin” or “sin”.

    I am weary of all of the articles and sound bytes blaming the President for every woe. Have we all become so cynical that we believe that he acted alone in creating a crisis? What about the House and the Senate who voted for bailouts, etc. ? Yet, when the criticisms come, he is held accountable.

    We have fallen into a trap and are being held there by these “spin doctors”. When they report that one person finished as a “strong second” and the former frontrunner “next to last” – before you spread the news, check the facts. How many were actually in the race? If there were only 2 candidates, finishing first is “next to last”.

    Turn off the televison. Read a book. Take a walk. Talk to people and honestly listen. Knowledge is power. Be awed by the wonderments that surround you. Share memories and moments. If something hurts you, tell the offender and give him or her an opportunity to explain and apologize. Hold yourself accountable for your actions. If you have to pause and think of a justification, maybe it isn’t such a great idea.

    Play hard, honest and fair.

    Now, enjoy your day, your way.

  4. Had a great weekend skiing with the kids. Sorry, Brad & Angelina…Your names never came up.
