I'd moon it...
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so." -- Douglas Adams
That was fun, but unfortunately, all too accurate. Somehow, the straightforward news of the moon landing lent a lot more importance and drama to the historic event.
It makes me wonder if we are really better off with news the way it is today......
Do you really wonder if we're better off, Suzi? Is the answer not obvious? Can you compare Cronkite getting emotional over the moon landing with Glenn Beck getting emotional over the "danger to our country and way of life"? Seriously?
Sorry, not trying to criticize you personally, but there is certainly a reson I don't watch TV news other than local (which is a bit overly sensational itself).
TV news is all about the conflict and the drama any more and has been for years. Check your brain at the door.
That was the point I was making Tin....Most of the "news" today isn't news at all. It's opinions and milking any story to fill air time. To see Walter Cronkite get emotional meant something, as it was so rare. And he did his best to keep it from showing. He became emotional over things that touched us all...the moon landing, JFKs assassination....not ideology and spin.
(I don't watch a lot of TV, but admit that cable news accounts for over half of what I do watch. )
