Editing and rewriting

Do you remember the reviews I wrote on the CD for Morrissey's YOU ARE THE QUARRY? Well, I think it's time that I work on a newsletter for this month and, though the CD has been out for quite awhile, I've been reading everything I entered tagged music: morrissey. The thing has almost filled all ten pages. Sheesh. You know what's prompting to get the .pdf formatted zine completed? The computers at work crop off the entire right side of my blog when printing, and that sucks because I don't know how to fix it. I think it's just fair, that if people are running the same OS as the PCs at work, they should be able to print something I write and read it at the breakfast table over coffee. I can't possibly fit everything I write into this blog, so I'm just hi-liting.

L.A.`s own reality soap opera

A trusted voice in latino media finds her career on hold

by Duke Helfand, MJ LATimes, July 21, 2007 §A1

Last weeks time's article on the the unethical behavior of news reporter Mirthala Salinas has curious minds wondering whether she will keep her job with Telemundo, or what. I searched everywhere for results to this cliff hanger as the L.A. Times news story above indicated Monday would produce a decision by Telemundo boardmemebers. The closest thing I came to was an abc.com update.

I think it's sad. People, like myself, use others' misfortunes to make their own day seem less hellish. I found an audio clip of a commentary on the sexual scandal at Flagsblot.com It's the 5 o`clock hour. Do you know what you're children watching? I'm sure the news networks aren't going to get around to covering any bad news about the termination of Salinas until 11:00 tonight, if at all. I agree with people who support Antonio's behavior as irrelevant to his performance in his job. It's nobody's business what his marital/love situation is, and the actions of the news reporter should be equally respected by her employers. For god's sake, since when is anybody reprimanded for having a fling? I swear to God, if Salinas is disciplined, I'm going to want to hear details about how it is she used her body to cut corners, making her job a breeze. The way I see it, elected officials cater to the people. If the people kill their neighbors, then a politician kills; if people molest their children, then politicians molest children and if the majority of marriages are open to promiscuity, then politicians will sleep around. Is there a flaw in the voting system or not? That's the way I look at government politics in this country.

Fortune teller says…

You Are The Wheel of Fortune

You represent the cycles of life, death, and rebirth.
You embrace change, the the ups and downs of life.
Fate is something you accept, even when you could possibly change things.
Big things tend to happen to you more than other people.

Your fortune:

Something huge is about to happen in your life, and you have little control over it.
You must accept your destiny, but luckily it is good fortune that has come your way.
Big things and big changes are about to come your way.
And while things will be intense for a while, they will be followed by a period of rest.
