Tuesday terrors: It's almost Christmas, American teenagers are dumb, and Darth Vader took a selfie

TUESDAY DECEMBER 3 2013

I just looked at my calender for the first time this month--December 3 but it just seems to have a feel that December is already over. Maybe it's due to the oddly short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe it's because the rest of 2013 was a steamroller of time, marching through existence like a pale midnight rider.. taking with it the memories of the year and the hopes and dreams that never became reality through the last eleven months..

It's almost Christmas, everyone. And almost 2014. I can hardly wait until the SYFY TWILIGHT ZONE marathon heralds us into a new beginning..

And now for the news..

NO news is GOOD news? CNN is about to make a major change and have LESS news.. Well, the Weather Channel stopped airing weather.. The Central New Network may as well fire all their newscasters.. Call me crazy, but I miss the days of CNN'S HEADLINE NEWS back in the early days when they'd have a live broadcast, every half hour, of the news of the moment. Real news--like NEWS, and not just blips and beeps coming from talking heads. I am tired of politics.. I am tired of the 'right wing and left wing' arguments, arguments that go no where and are tired out from their own weight of hair air. And now CNN will air less news.. I am releasing a big 'sigh.'
I suppose this is only more evidence to show why millions of people go immediately to the INTERNET and Twitter for news--news you cannot find, or ever will, on any news network on the TEE VEE..

HEATHER WADING INTO DANGER: ART BELL RESPONDS

Heather Wade announced that she was going to go to Area 51 this coming June.. People have been responding fast and furious, with some stating she is in danger of being arrested--or even killed!

Talk show legend and original MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT host Art Bell is responding in kind to people on Facebook..

What Heather is doing is a brave act. For all my life people have talked Disclosure and talked and talked. I have no illusion that she will get to any Alien anything but at least she feels the need to do something, anything to move beyond talk and raise the stakes in trying to get to the truth. If we have been visited (and I believe we have) we have a right to know. It seems to me we have a moral right to know, will it change people’s basic faith? Not any more than the Pope suddenly being quoted as saying “There is no Hell”. We have a right to know, she is right and if a act of Civil Disobedience helps I am all for it.
