After a far too heavy recent diet of television newsthingies, I have decided the best thing to do -- perhaps the only sensible response -- if for each of us to buy one of the TV newreader/reporters a bottle of Moxie. Maybe even two.
...They need it badly, y'see, 'cos it was touted for years with the advertising claim that it prevents softening of the brain. Oh, sure, it's years too late for most of 'em at the network level, but maybe -- just perhaps -- it'll keep 'em from getting any worse.
This morning on CNBC, a muddleheaded anchor asked an (anti)nuclear expert what he thought about "...Japan's desperate move of using helicopters to drop water cannons on the reactors...." Even Joe Anti sat there a moment, stunned. Gads, what an image.
More Moxie, Nurse -- stat!
My dinner tonight: A slice of hot apple pie a la mode, washed down with Fentiman's Dandelion and Burdock soda, both from Locally Grown Gardens. 'Cos I can. Yeah, it's probably wrong. But it tastes just like Summertime.
