    Do you ever get so bored with the news that you find yourself wishing something REALLY BIG would happen?

    I seem to be there these last weeks.

    Frustrated would be a better word.
    We have no good news source any more.
    As Morley Safer said back when 60 minutes first started and the staff was anxiously awaiting Morley to get out of a meeting upstairs that would determine whether 60 minutes had a new contract.
    Morley addressed his staff and simply said..."I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is our ratings this season were the highest of any news show. The bad news is our ratings this season were the highest of any news show.
    He had predicted the outcome of television news from that day forward.

    Cool. Let's hope for a major disaster somewhere - just so Sunshine isn't bored. She can lead the cyber-mourning.

    Something big doesn't have to be a disaster. Just newsworthy:

    Armistice Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Which most of the new these days is not.

    I know what 'Armistice Day' is, thanks. I assume you have only just discovered this annual event... which is hardly a BIG event. It's an annual commemoration.

    Usually, when something BIG happens, it is not a good news story. That's the way of the world. Personally, I find it pretty stupid to wish for something "REALLY BIG" to happen.

    I hate it when the news keeps repeating the same shit over and over again......sometimes they do this while there is other news stories taking place.
    If anything big does happen, I hope to hell it's something good!

    I just can't get enough lost blondes in Aruba or stolen babies or Michael Jackson!

    It is the mothers milk of American culture!
