21st Century Lesbian Trailer Trash

These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

All The News

Lunching with my boss and the staff development director sometime during the past week, we got into a discussion of television. They were discussing the wonders of digital cable and the ability to watch their favorite shows whenever they wished.

My boss says, "So when Entertainment Tonight and Jeopardy come on, I just watch whatever I want. I read Star and the Enquirer so I already have all the news."

I have to look at her face to make sure that she is serious. She isn't overly sophisticated so I don't believe that this is a joke.

I search her face. Nope. Not a joke.

A shining example of your average American who believes that Tom Cruise is an important person and that the National Enquirer contains real news.

I hate to think of myself as a snob. But a person has to draw the line somewhere.

Gee, how about signing up for the 700 club newsletter?

How can someone seriously think that stuff is news?
