This bitch had a fantabulous evening of feastitude in support of Taste for Tunes at Atomic Cowboy!
Congratulations to KDHX and everyone involved with Taste for Tunes.
On a gratitude-based note…
This bitch would like to say a special thank you to a certain HW for taking the time to listen to my troubles and then break shit down until it was forever broke.
You are the shit, girl!
Thank you for telling the story of my life to me (wink).
My mind is clear and my soul is at peace.
Long time readers know that this bitch has no love for Katie Couric. And no, a bitch is not going to jump on the ‘but this was a huge monumental moment for all women’ wagon.
Katie Couric taking over the anchor chair…solo…made history.
But not the kind of history a bitch is going to jump up and do a dance about.
Rather, Katie Couric’s debut and the media frenzy that surrounded it was far from reason to celebrate.
Other countries have elected women heads of state, for the love of all that’s holy!
And we’re getting all worked up over a woman reading the sorta-news at 5:30 pm CST.
Lawd, give me strength.
The sad thing is that this is huge for America. A woman’s voice…even one as annoying as Couric’s…delivering the sorta-truth to the 25 people still watching the news at 5:30pm was one small step for womankind and one giant leap for the network trailing in 3rd place while still trying to recover for a reporting scandal.
So, where is the story about this story about the news as the story?
Is it that Katie is heading a network news show? Or could it be that many still considered appointing a woman to head the network news show a risky move? Or could it be that millions of viewers who have never watched the news turned in and held their breath as if frogs would start raining from the heavens the second Katie opened her mouth?
Our reaction to this shit highlights just how fucking backward we are…how resistant to change American society is… and how deluded to reality the masses are.
A bitch dislikes Katie Couric. But that heifer deserves the anchor chair as much, if not more so, than Brian Williams and what’s his face over at ABC.
The news is not that she got the nod…not that we’ve come a long way, BabySugarHoneyDarling.
The news is that we’ve still got miles upon miles upon miles to go.
