weather warnings, but we know it’s raining

Lee Cataluna had a typically good piece about how fear brings out the grandstanders and self promoters.  The public wants to know about potential danger, and bad news is a marketing opportunity.  As a former newscaster, she could not help but notice the familiar TV media news team mobilization in anticipation of a long awaited really good November storm only to have but the biggest stories being a roof being blown off and or high water in Hanalei.   Now we have  “furlough Friday,” swine flu vaccine,  petty workplace politics;  bosses badgering staff to produce product of little worth but opportunistic self-promotion and everybody knows what’s going on.  How much of the gross national product goes into that kind of garbage?  It’s human nature.  Another opportunity to learn and understand compassion, and leave judgement to others.
