Slow News Day

A student who did nothing wrong, a bear falls out of a tree, the TV show that won't be shown.......these are the big stories of the day. On the Today show this morning they were teaching us how to make a wedding cake. CNN reported the oldest man in the world turned 112. The biggest scandal anyone can come up with is Barry Manilow not appearing on The View because he's afraid of Elisabeth Hasselbeck. That could just as easily have been a joke on Jay Leno last night. I wasn't setting my TIVO to record the show anyway. So the real news today is that there's no news.
It's a throwback to the days before the 24 hour news cycle. Don't get me wrong....I love all the alternatives in media available now. It's just nice to have a break from all the hysteria for a day. Let's all take a deep breath and enjoy it.
