U otta bin bloggin

I am a news junkie. It’s awful, I know. But I really enjoy watching some earth-shattering event unfold. When they have to break into programming, my heart skips a beat and I lean close in anticipation.

I have the cable news stations down to a science. I watch a lot of Fox News but when there’s something big going on, I go to CNN because I think they have better camera work and nicer graphics. This is a little embarrassing.

I love politics, but I do get bored with listening to talking heads constantly yammering on about liberal this and conservative that.

When I just need the day’s top stories, I hit Headline News. And when they get too opinionated, I mute the TV and read the scrawl. Or is it scroll? Let’s go with ticker. Why not?

I check the Weather Channel regularly, although living in Oklahoma, I think our local meteorologists cover our weather better. And we have the super-duper-who’s-your-daddy Doppler-XXX-9000 radar system so NO tornadoes are going to sneak up on Tulsa.

I was blogging when the Osama bin Laden announcement came through. At least, I was attempting to blog. I had a paragraph written and had round-filed it in disgust and gone to bed. I turned on the TV as I was getting into bed and I caught sight of the international brouhaha. I violently elbowed my husband awake and spent the next two hours flipping between Fox and CNN.

I love a good news story. That is all I have to say about that.
