The Year of the Shark and Other Fairy Tales the News Groups Told Me

It is impossible to tell what would really be the greatest story to be followed by news groups in any year where there is little of earth shattering news; the indications are that many of the old standbys would dominate the news. It seemed that terror seemed to dominate the news before and after 9/11. During the news cycles during the year 2001, the same recurring themes seemed to dominate, just as they did in the decade before, with less hand wringing and feigned outrage over the antics of a Democratic administration that was in power before 2001. The bombings in Israel by Palestinian suicide bombers and the export of terror by the Taliban and the continued death of dictators with an ax to grind with the United States, such as Kim Jung Il of North Korea, Muoammar Kadhafi in Libya, Sadaam Hussein in Iraq and Mamoud Achmedinijhad in Iran and the world at large would have still been the top stories of the news groups (The Arizona Republic, 2009). The domestic terrorism would have been more palpable, such as the mailing of anthrax that was sent in five letters and the execution of Timothy McVeigh. There should have less been made over the President lying about having sex with an intern, the more immediate concern of having the ability to take Osama Bin Laden out of commission and letting him escape would have been a more creditable idea, though it provided less human interest than the most powerful man in the world finding ways to dally with someone of no particular interest. While there was a change in the White House, the top stories would have been based on the political ideology of the press, which is decidedly left. The belief of the people of the United States that political mistakes would be made, were simply forced by the vision of the press, as seen through the bias of the tainted illuminati of the press corps. Nothing new would have happened there, so the press would still do as it always did and seek targets that might be a little right of center and paint them with disgusting stories of sordid affairs, sexual misconduct and insensitivity to the problems caused by humans being human. The press circus seems to always focus on the mundane and the sexual preferences of politicians rather than the ideas that might make a difference in the way we would live in the future. A decade after the Monika Lewinsky scandal, there was no real damage done, however 9/11 was tied directly to Osama Bin Laden, who was let go. While it seems cynical to determine that the press is really of no consequence in seeking truth, it is always the harbinger of the sensational rather than the necessary. Looking at the political year 2004, there were several stories that never made the headlines of having something done about them. They splashed there quickly and quietly died away as quickly as they came to the forefront. The mismanagement and corruption of the United Nations is legendary, but since Kofi Annon was the Secretary General, there was no real probe into the corruption he fostered and kept going through nepotism and failure to be truthful (Fox News, Dec. 30, 2004). This could have been a bigger story, but since the press is ensconced in the belief that the United Nations can solve all the world’s ills, they would have probably let this idea die. However one of the old standbys for the press, global warming, would have perhaps been tied into shark attacks and other maladies of the natural world. The press never tires of telling us how unfeeling and selfish we are as a nation and that our sense of guilt should let us become a ‘green’ society with complete equality of income and importance and self worth, which would bring in the utopia that the press feels should come out of the ashes of a capitalistic society. The overlooked topics of the year 2012 that should have given us all pause were the fact that so many ‘elected’ leaders throughout the world seemed to have taken on dictatorial powers, such as Kim Jong Un in North Korea, Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, Mohammed Morsi in Egypt, and Mamoud Achmedinijhad in Iran (Johnson, B., 2012). It would seem as if either the world has given in to dictators and allowed them free reign or the elections were tainted to start with. Much has been made of the election misgivings of Bush beating Gore, but the possibility of shenanigans going on in the last election are just as incomplete as the observations made when President Kennedy technically stole that election. It is possible within the margin of error that ballot box stuffing went on in the old Chicago style, just as it did to get President Kennedy elected, the only difference may have been that the election was not dependent upon just one city. Perhaps the press view of the election is jaded, as the press got the results it wanted. The big stories and scandals may be out there, but those who would not want their fears validated and their views repudiated only scoff at it. It is apparent that Bengazi and the killing of four Americans will be swept under the rug and is also another scandal that will never see the light of day in a big manner and will not have a recently elected president of the press’ party be investigated as it was against one who was not of their party in Richard Nixon. While no politician should get away with dirty or underhanded deals, it should be more of a fair approach and the press should see the possibility that the one they backed may be every bit as corrupt and dangerous in the job as one they disliked. The only thing that might have topped any list might be the possibility that the Mayans could have been right (Rosenthal, A, Dec. 3, 2012).

From my earliest memory, the subject has been worn to death in the castle, nay, in the entire kingdom. It is said that spindle, rather than Mama or Papa, was my first word in infancy, and I have little doubt that this is true, for ’tis the word which lights more frequently than any other upon my most unwilling ears. “Talia, dearest, you must never touch a spindle,” Mother would say as she tucked me into bed at night. “I will not, Mother.” “Vous devez ne jamais toucher un axe,” my tutor would say during French lessons. “I will not,” I told him in English. “If ye spy a spindle, ye must leave it alone,” the downstairs 1 maid said as I left the castle, always with my governess, for I was never allowed a moment alone. Every princeling, princess, or lesser noble who came to the castle to play was told of the restrictions upon spindles— lest they have one secreted about their person somewhere, or lest they mistakenly believe I was normal.

Christopher Pike - Weekend

...that we'd see a Margarita Ville Canteen - that's the name she gave me — about half an hour before the dirt road that leads to her house. She said the canteen was impossible to miss." "What does Lena know?" Kerry grumbled. She hated Lena, and Lena hated her. If either of them died this weekend from mysterious causes, Shani would not be terribly surprised. Only the promised presence of Sol Celaya - Kerry's ex, stolen away by Lena - had given Kerry the incentive to approach her arch rival's house. At least, Sol was the reason why Shani figured Kerry had come. Despite having known her since first grade, Shani didn't altogether trust her. Kerry was too temperamental, too impulsive. But then again, she didn't trust Lena, either. God probably didn't trust Lena; she could be one shrewd terror. "Don't start that again," Angie said. "She had just better not hassle me," Kerry said. "And you had just better not fight with her in front of her sister," Angie said. "It sure was nice of Robin to organize this weekend," Shani said, wishing to change the subject. "Yeah… it wa - was," Kerry agreed, stuttering, as she often did at odd moments. "How… how is… Robin?" They - everyone at school - always asked her this question: How is Robin? Have you seen Robin? Is Robin better? Shani did not resent the concern, nor even the painful memories the questions always brought. After all, Robin was her best friend. It was only natural others should come to her for updates. What she did dislike was the......

...again to perform her calisthenic exercises when her mother, who at the moment chanced to be looking up from her embroidery, called to her: "Effi, you really ought to have been an equestrienne, I'm thinking. Always on the trapeze, always a daughter of the air. I almost believe you would like something of the sort." "Perhaps, mama. But if it were so, whose fault would it be? From whom do I get it? Why, from no one but you. Or do you think, from papa? There, it makes you laugh yourself. And then, why do you always dress me in this rig, this boy's smock? Sometimes I fancy I shall be put back in short clothes yet. Once I have them on again I shall courtesy like a girl in her early teens, and when our friends in Rathenow come over I shall sit in Colonel Goetze's lap and ride a trot horse. Why not? He is three-fourths an uncle and only one-fourth a suitor. You are to blame. Why don't I have any party clothes? Why don't you make a lady of me?" CHAPTER I "Should you like me to?" "No." With that she ran to her mother, embraced her effusively and kissed her. "Not so savagely, Effi, not so passionately. I am always disturbed when I see you thus." 3 At this point three young girls stepped into the garden through the little iron gate in the churchyard wall and started along the gravel walk toward the round bed and the sundial. They all waved their umbrellas at Effi and then ran up to Mrs. von Briest and kissed her hand. She hurriedly asked a few questions and then invited the......

Living History

...___________________________ LIVING HISTORY Hillary Rodham Clinton Simon & Schuster New York • London • Toronto • Sydney • Singapore To my parents, my husband, my daughter and all the good souls around the world whose inspiration, prayers, support and love blessed my heart and sustained me in the years of living history. AUTHOR’S NOTE In 1959, I wrote my autobiography for an assignment in sixth grade. In twenty-nine pages, most half-filled with earnest scrawl, I described my parents, brothers, pets, house, hobbies, school, sports and plans for the future. Forty-two years later, I began writing another memoir, this one about the eight years I spent in the White House living history with Bill Clinton. I quickly realized that I couldn’t explain my life as First Lady without going back to the beginning―how I became the woman I was that first day I walked into the White House on January 20, 1993, to take on a new role and experiences that would test and transform me in unexpected ways. By the time I crossed the threshold of the White House, I had been shaped by my family upbringing, education, religious faith and all that I had learned before―as the daughter of a staunch conservative father and a more liberal mother, a student activist, an advocate for children, a lawyer, Bill’s wife and Chelsea’s mom. For each chapter, there were more ideas I wanted to discuss than space allowed; more people to include than could be named; more places visited than could be......

Healthcare

...upon the book’s publication-hope that the book might succeed beyond my youthful dreams, despair that I had failed to say anything worth saying. The reality fell somewhere in between. The reviews were mildly favorable. People actually showed up at the readings my publisher arranged. The sales were underwhelming. And, after a few months, I went on with the business of my life, certain that my career as an author would be short-lived, but glad to have survived the process with my dignity more or less intact. I had little time for reflection over the next ten years. I ran a voter registration project in the 1992 election cycle, began a civil rights practice, and started teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago. My wife and I bought a house, were blessed with two gorgeous, healthy, and mischievous daughters, and struggled to pay the bills. When a seat in the state legislature opened up in 1996, some friends persuaded me to run for the office, and I won. I had been warned, before taking office, that state politics lacks the glamour of its Washington counterpart; one labors largely in obscurity, mostly on topics that mean a great deal to some but that the average man or woman on the street can safely ignore (the regulation of mobile homes, say, or the tax consequences of farm equipment depreciation). Nonetheless, I found the work satisfying, mostly because the scale of state politics allows for concrete results-an expansion of health insurance for poor children, or a......
