News boredom sets in at "God in the Machine"
Reagan died, I grieved, I'm moving on. After that, there's.. er, nothing.
The press is trying to manufacture headlines, of course, and convince us each is the most exciting news ever ("McCain might run for VP! Except he already told Hannity he won't!", "Reagan STILL dead! See 24/7 footage of people in a line!"). But mostly, there's nothing to fret about out there.. no real news from Iraq, the election coverage is already worn out and it's only June, nothing blowing up, no celebs caught in acts of naughtiness... just, nothing.
I guess I could turn on 20/20 and see what's likely to kill me today. ("Oxygen could kill you! Tonight on 20/20!" or "Why this simple q-tip could turn your home into a deathtrap! Tonight on 20/20!")
Even sports is slow. I have one word for you: summer baseball. Ouch.
NBA finals? Lakers in the finals? Seen it. Pistons staging an amazing 2-1 upset so far? Nice... um, why can't I name any of them, then?
Hockey. Is the hockey season over yet?
Somebody wake me in November.
