A Vampire Looks at The News (and it isn’t good)

I was going to play off of a news story today for my blog posting. I couldn’t find a story to even leap off of.

Dowton Abby started last night. I thought it was Downtown Abby. See what I know. I’m not always one for historic drama seeing as I’ve already been there and done that.

There was a squid invasion off of the coast of California. As long as they don’t trek the 90 miles inland to my house I’m good.

Taylor Swift broke up with her boyfriend. That isn’t really news. Young people ought to be breaking up and not getting too serious with each other. Isn’t that what youth is all about? And anyway, my kids mostly listen to Indie bands these days.

I saw this chilling story: “A 17-year-old, self-proclaimed white supremacist will be arraigned today in what police say was a plot to attack fellow students at his high school in Russell County, Ala., with homemade explosive devices.” Don’t be afraid of things that go bump in the night, Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts and even Zombies. Be afraid of insane white supremacists and the Westboro Baptist Church and anyone who thinks that hate should rule the world. Where the F are the parents??? Don’t they ever talk to their kid or watch what he is doing? Why the F do people like that even have kids. SHAME ON YOU.

Prince Charles is said to be “worried about the environment”. He needs to be worried about his kids getting naked at parties in Las Vegas and all the crazy ass hats the female members of his family are wearing.

Honey Boo Boo family has a money plan? What? To set up a first rate meth lab? Why is that news? Why do we care? Why are those people on TV?

It just seems that sometimes the news outlets are looking for so much flash to drag people in. It isn’t even sensationalism. It sure isn’t The Weekly World News. It is just trash. I hope that the culture of Jersey Shore, Redneck Everything, Pregnant and 16 (and stupid) would just go away. It has gone beyond entertainment and now poses as news. I have nothing else to say except I’m disgusted with what the public has accepted as normal and as news.

The fact, that I try to tell my children, is that it drowns out what is really important. And you know what that is. I don’t need to make another one of my famous bulleted lists. .

Some of you might ask about Vampire News.  There is some. A little. Nothing for you to be concerned about. Nothing that we can’t handle ourselves.

And don’t forget to watch for squids crossing the road…
