A bitch is stressed out!
Tonight my ass is going to take a walk and burn off some of these nerves.
Jumping right in…
A bitch has a rule that I follow about reading other bloggers before posting…thou shall harvest before thou dines. In other words, a bitch does not read blogs until my ass has posted. Otherwise it is too easy to inadvertently be stimulated by a great thought and neglect your own original thoughts.
This practice usually isn’t hard to adhere to, since a bitch cranks out my posts quickly and usually before midday. But today was one of those rare days when this bitch couldn’t think of a damned thing to write about. Oh, there was lots of stuff swirling around in my head, but nothing came together.
I was just about to say fuck it and post more pictures of beagles when a certain Pontifical Brother of the United Church of Bitchitude and Latter Day Drunks called with a fascinating lead.
It seems that District of Columbia's police chief declared a crime emergency.
Washington D.C., home of our federal government…a city lousy with diplomats and elected officials…is overflowing with crime!
Well, that will not do!
Washington D.C. is a tourist attraction…it is our nation’s home base, so to speak…we invite international guests there to discuss shit, for the love of Gawd!
Certainly CNN, Google News and ABC News will be all over this like flies on…
Mercy, none of these news powerhouses has this story featured!
Thank goodness for Drudge (wink).
The capitol city of the United States of America is experiencing a crime wave so intense that the police have cried no mas.
That’s news isn’t it?
Or is a bitch working with an outdated definition of what news is?
Because my ass thinks that a major crime wave in Washington D.C. is more important than Joey Buttafuoco going back to jail, Star Jones Reynolds long term career choices and the latest set of twins to be born months apart due to some medical advancement specific to birthing twins months apart!
Y’all had room on your web sites; you just needed to clean up a bit to expose it!
Lawd, have mercy.
ABB’s Conspiracy Theory Moment…
Or maybe this is a sign of our government’s control of all things media related and this must be what it feels like to live in Russia and not know major shit happening right under your nose! Mmmhmm…this could be a case of pots trash talking kettles!
Or is it simply another sign of the growing infection that is entertainment present in the body that used to be news?
Update - CNN, the television version, decided to cover the D.C. crime wave story this morning. Oh, and they also covered whether Vince Vaughn purchased a massive engagement ring for Jennifer Anniston...going so far as to show the alleged gem and then clarifying that reps for both sorta-stars have denied the report they (CNN of the star fucking CNNs) just spent that last 10 minutes spewing!
Lawd, save us all...
