The deadline is looming for me to turn in my weekly blog for approval from the company CEO. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that the closer the deadline gets, the more anxious I feel. You see, I am suffering from what they call writers block and can’t come up with anything.
Well, that’s not entirely true, I will rephrase that. I am having a hard time coming up with a blog that will pass the CEO’s approval. I have plenty of things to say, but they may not be appropriate for this blog site that is linked to Doc’s place of work. After all, I wouldn’t want to say something that would get Doc fired. So, in the interest of staying politically correct, I will tell you all the things I would like to comment on but can’t and then you can fill in the blanks.
Lets start with the cable show on E! about that all American family called “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” That family alone would provide enough material for at least ten blogs a year.
Next on the list would be the 2016 presidential race. Along with the candidates that are running, there is a whole other group of characters on the sidelines that include the press, those endorsing certain candidates and the talking heads on the 24 hour news channels. That would be good for at least one blog every hour.
I also became interested in a story about a communications professor at The University of Missouri, that was also teaching in the journalism school. During a campus protest that she was involved in, the professor yelled “Hey who wants to help me get this reporter out of here?” when she attempted to censor and remove a group of student journalists trying to cover the event. She was charged with assault and reached a deal to do twenty hours of community service and no jail time if she stays out of trouble for a year, but I won’t say what I am thinking.
Then there’s always a host of others stories including but not limited to; people suing the BMV for their right to wear colander’s on their heads for their driver’s license photo, adults that dress up like animals and call themselves “Furries”, a man who takes and sells “artistic” photos of images he shaves in his back hair, and the flock of sheep in New Zealand that took down some criminals trying to escape from the police.
You get the idea. I have to say, I already feel better just letting you know what is on my mind. Whats on your mind? Let me know in the comments below or on Facebook.
