"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

The View Is A Bit Scrambled

I am more familiar  with Brian Williams as a guest on Letterman than as news Anchor . That 's not saying a lot.

It seemed he enjoyed playing an opposite  role of raconteur; a story teller adding and embellishing
as he spins the yarn. He was  entertaining in a show increasingly lacking in wit.  It can't be easy churning that stuff out five days a week

So now Rosie O'Donnel says  he's a liar and Tom Brokaw says  acording to the Gospel of St.John, he ought to  be fired from his $12 million a year gig as an Icon.

Big Bill O'Reilly has something negative to say about Rosie O' Donnel.

Tom Brokaw was a guest on Letterman a while ago. He struck a negative knell although
Letterman appeared to enjoy the conversation.

I went into Facebook this morning looking for pictures and videos of my grandchildren and great  grandchildren. A little video of two-year old Isla holding  one year old Maeva 's hands, helping little sister to walk has entertained me since day before yesterday.

Robyn and Adam and Adam's friend Brent are in photos enjoying the sun in Fort Myers.

Kari Chung is getting excited about  an upcoming trip with to the U.K. Kari went to school in
Hong Kong. After Hong Kong was returned to China, Kari and  school friends scattered  all over. They have reached the marrying age and attend each others's weddings as good friends should.
The one upcoming is in Finland but there's a stopover in London. Today's insert was seventeen great walks in Llndon. I took them all.

This morning Isla and Maeva  and Grandson Myles are at Fresh Co, in Cambridge  wearing green plastic hats and having something to do with potatoes and a food bank. Mary is busy with the camera. A new sibling is due any minute and Mary, a nurse  in the Home Care program is on strike and has to attend union meetings .

I don't know how Facebook took me into all the troubles and problems experienced by American  media celebrities.

 Rosie O'Donnel's legendary wit has escaped me since her fracas with Tom Suleck  about the NRA.
She has been through  two marriages and a near fatal heart attack since.

Big Bill O'Reilly has a product to sell and  sells it well in his market.

I had drops in my eyes yesterday for certain measurement to be taken. Couldn't see for a while.

Didn't care much for that experience.All I could do was look at pictures and not even that very well.

Mr Williams is in deep trouble - the Americans love to take someone out especially when he is brighter.

You really did not miss much in either Canadian or American news - hearing it was probably all you needed.
Rosie appears to be leaving her show whatever that was.........

You must feel like flight control keeping tabs on you flock.

If you are catching up on your reading material, there was a decent article in the Globe on the sequel to " To kill A Mocking Bird ". Apparently the author is not even aware that it is causing such a ruckus.
