What is all this celebrating about? Adding toxins to the soil and water. Wild life running for their lives. Nothing good or healthy has ever come from a Fireworks display. Not to worry, the environment suffers only once a year, or so I’m told…

The producers of most news programs seem to have never heard of the term ‘over kill’, (excessive) which seem to be in play during every broadcast. A perfectly good image (images) is introduced to open a discussion, then immediately the same image appears again and again which proceeds to upstage everything said by a panel and numbs the viewers understanding of the issues as it again appears in split screen. (Passed beyond maturity or ripeness toward decay), thank you Merriam-Webster. Over kill. Tell me again what is under discussion? It’s easy to understand news programs are written for five year olds, repetition is their key to be comprehendible. Am I repeating myself? I guess you now know why…this post is for broadcast producers…

Sonia Manzano is retiring from Sesame Street after forty-four years of teaching kids on television about life’s ups and downs. About birth, death and marriage, even what it means to be homeless and hungry much of the day and appearing different from others? However, one teaching moment she let pass, at a certain age some people’s hair start to change color, it turns gray…as hers never did…

In this political season, are you shopping for a presidential candidate? Have you picked one yet? Do they dye their hair? If yes. Why do they dye their hair? Is it to appear new and approved like soap powder in a new exciting package…?

For the sake of this post, America’s slave trade began during the sixteenth century. Africans imported to English colonies as indentured servants or apprentices for life, then it became more complete as a racial caste, easily identifiable by skin color, leaving little doubt as to who was a slave and who was not. Their offspring were born into slavery, were owned property bought and sold like livestock until death do they part. The colonist having recently immigrated from the old world (Europe) thought as a means of pacification taught the slaves their religion but only the parts necessary to insure pacification and not to include reading or exploratory research. We now know that was their down fall, among the teachings was The Ten Commandments which formed the basis of almost every slave revolt since. The church house, first held mixed worship services, then African only services, now freed to mock the masters and plain strategic operations of endurance leading to freedom, singing.

‘Oh Freedom’

And before I’d be a slave I’ll be buried in my grave. And go home to my Lord and be free…

Then they started burning down every African church in town…regretting the gift of religion to the slaves at every turn, forgetting the true teachings as they altered it to fit their dominance, passing it on to the modern prototype that can be seen in some form today…’Oh freedom’…

Walk into any super market store, note the fresh fruits and vegetables, the produce, is uniform of size, shape and even color, they did not come out of the ground looking that way, that is the way we have come to expect them to look. Now look at all the women in broadcast news, yes all of them, all uniform in dyed hair, false eyelashes and greasy lips, they did not walk into the studio looking that way, that is the way we have come to expect them to look. MY concern is twofold. The young viewing female being infused with a standard of taste and beauty at an age when wholesomeness once lost can never be recaptured. My other concern is the introduction of harmful dyes and chemicals that most females come to know as they age. We have come to expect the older female to liberally apply all sorts of caustic chemicals to the skin in a vain effort to look younger. With so few years of life left the harmful substances remain low before true harm sets in, however, caustic chemicals applied over a longer period of time when young, accumulate in fatty tissue where overtime real harm cannot be reversed. So many people develop cancers from influences outside the body without the need to elect to add them for no good reason. In short some people are killing themselves…with ornamentalism…

A person for years confined in a wheelchair, a cure now available freed from restriction will not be able to run a marathon without some long term conditioning of lower body muscle. Another muscle that require conditioning, the brain. After spending a year or more watching cartoons with the children, hours in front of a television as a ball moves  across a field, the wasting of brain muscle as in a wheelchair bond person begin to take its toll. This month the Supreme Court will be issuing judicial decisions, if the brain is not in top condition it will not be able to follow or understand the consequences, though some may think it can. Many of the studies required in High School have always been a wonder. Algebra and geometry just to name two, have always been talked about as subjects that will never be used in real adult life, wrong. The study of some subjects may never be used in a direct familial atmosphere but in a more important analytical understanding of others, without those skills lifelong human education would never have advanced beyond the caves of dunce…
