Fox News is Lamer Than I Ever Imagined

I’ve been working at a local coffee shop for the past hour, and for most of that Fox News (on the obligatory, hideous plasma television) has been showing a car chase in LA. But as far as I can tell, it’s, well, just a car chase. And over the entire thing there’s this inane discussion of jurisdiction, what his intentions are, etc. What I love is the little ticker: “Driver may be heavily tattooed”. And then the voice over, “Well, I guess he figures he’s getting his 15 minutes of fame.” Huh, ya think? And who’s providing that? And all the while the white on red ALERT pulsates. Maybe I’ve just missed the part of the story where he has a hostage, or, well, anything newsworthy. But no, it’s apparently just some guy who stole a shitty rusted out Camry.

Maybe instead of “Fair and Balanced” they could brand their news service “Sensationalist and Explotative.” Just a suggestion.

house for sale

I turned 30 in November of last year, and the months since have been full of changes. I can’t write about some of them yet, and I’m not ready to write about others, but this one I can share. I’m selling my house in Fort Wayne, Indiana. You can find a map of the area, with a few things I love about the neighborhood over at My Google Maps. I’ll try to add some additional things as I think of them.

1132 Westover

The house isn’t listed with a Realtor yet; probably in the next week or two. But if you’re interested, feel free to contact me — I love this house, it’s just time to move on.
