Went down to Cincinnati for the second half of the weekend. Caught the Riverfest fireworks shindig (well, the upper half of it anyway). For some reason, fireworks interest me more now than they did when I was a kid.
1) Heard from my mother. Everyone’s okay. Every place, on the other hand, is a mess.
B) Like always, I tried avoiding tv news. But I had to watch a little. The levels of stupidity uttered on cable news continue to amuze me:
CNN Haircut: Chief Justice William Rhenquist died last night. We’ll bring you the latest developments in that story.
What “developments”? Last I checked, he was still dead.
“Developments” is always something that annoyed me from my time in news. It’s one of those words used when you don’t have anything new to say about a situation but still want to make it sound important.
3) Earlier this year, I attended a Star Wars convention. This is a pretty accurate representation of the experience. Click on the period at the end for more.
