I take a break, only to learn that huge news is being ignored!
It's always nice to take a break from blogging, and for the past three days I did just that. At no point did I have time to get online, not even to check email. The closest I got to blogging was a wonderful visit with M. Simon on Friday night at Rockford's Irish Rose Saloon.
While we did not discuss current events much, I think I may have mentioned that I had stumbled across a major shocker which has been systematically kept out of the mainstream media, and that is the president's battle with lung cancer!
I kid you not. A relative who is better informed than I am had the inside report, and as I happened to have my camera along, I photographed the shocking evidence.
There is virtually nothing about this in the MSM, and while the blogosphere has gotten too large to monitor, I for one will not sit idly by and ignore a major event that should be newsbreaking, but is instead being covered up.
Instead of the truth, ordinary Americans are being distracted by a sexed up story about Tiger Woods hitting a fire hydrant after being allegedly attacked by his allegedly jealous trophy bride. (The latter is rumored to be indignant over Woods' alleged affair with another bombshell who is in turn rumored to be hiring celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and suing the tabloids for their reporting.)
Obviously, such a story has all the elements necessary to provide a distraction, and I cannot help notice that Tiger Woods' wife is Swedish. And yesterday morning, I had breakfast at the famous Swedish Pancake House. In Illinois!
