With a considerable Irish accent my Uncle implored, "Charmaine, have you read the Financial Times?"
When I hear the word "financial" my mind goes black. I don't like f-words that fail to end in "uck". (Irish people like to swear.) It makes us happy.
For the record...the Financial Times is the paper at your news stand published on pink paper. It's not all about finance, rather, it's a fascinating paper published in London. You will learn about what is going on in this country (and the world) if you pick it up.
You will not, however, learn anything about Brittany Spears.
It's the real deal. (Reporting not dummied down for a third grade audiance.)
The next time you are at the news stand reaching for the New York Times (because you are a thinking person)...look to your right and grab the pink paper...
Then let's talk about the articles you might read like...Learned Addiction. (Computer game addiction had one couple in Korea arrested for focusing on raising a "virtual" baby while their own child starved to death.) You don't get "points" on the internet for feeding your baby in real life.
Everyone is so starved for legitamate attention they need computer game "points".
Let's give each other points...shall we? Points in the real world for behaving well when being politically correct has numbed everyone into oblivion.
