Posting just to be posting; keyword: hype.

I'm so tired of TV news promos telling me these are the news people I trust. Hype. Ad people think they can sell you on trusting recent Washington State University Communications Department graduates with nice hair who don't know how to pronounce "epitome". And Presidential candidates who remained inarticulate in spite of four years at Yale and Down-East-aristocrat genes. The problem is, hype frequently works. Are your legs feeling restless yet? [Surfing Warning: link takes you to site owned by GlaxoSmithKline.] Just a couple of things to get off my chest. Later.
