Ruminations of the Easily Amused for Dec 3 2013


Ruminations of the Easily Amused for Dec 3 2013

For me, the last part of the year is spent trying to get some projects done so as not to drag them into a fresh new year. One of those projects is cleaning the garage, so posting may be slow between now and Jan 1st. The weather this week also looks sunny, but cool and beautiful.

I say Happy Holidays because I'm inclusive of everyone and respectful. Kind of boggles the mind that Republicans not only want not to be that way but want to find opportunities to trash others during what ought to be a happy peaceful season for all.

Some people celebrate Christmas and some don't. It's fine to say "Merry Christmas." But sometimes, a speaker wants to be especially mindful of the fact that not all of his or her listeners celebrate Christmas, so he or she says "Happy Holidays."

Why should Republicans have a problem with that? When Republicans say they have a problem with it, what message are they sending to non-Christian voters?

Most voters are Christian, so a pro-Christmas position seems like it should be popular. But Republicans don't understand how their anti-outsider messages aggregate.

I don't know if I really want drones delivering packages to my door. Not because I don't think maybe that's possible but because ISN"T THERE ENOUGH ANNOYING STUFF IN THE AIR RIGHT NOW?  I like it when, for example, helicopters keep right on a-going past the property and would like it if they didn't even fly over.

News has long been secondary to entertainment but that doesn't mean I want to pay for cable to watch it that way.

The 48-year-old Zucker initially faced internal resistance to his experiments beyond the realm of hard news, but he now has an irrefutable retort: The No. 1 show on CNN is now “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” a travel-adventure show featuring the bad-boy celebrity chef. Zucker said that inside CNN, his formula has finally been accepted “because people have seen the results.”

Zucker is ramping up changes across the massive organization, some subtle and some extreme.

More series and films untethered to the news and produced by outside production companies will get runs in primetime: “Yes, there will be more and, yes, they will not just be on Sundays…," he said. "I think it will expand past just the weekends, and so there's a little piece of news for you… This is a primetime play. It's too expensive to confine it to weekends.”
