    833427 808515Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone! 391486

    A teacher would be fired if her lectures were as disorganized as the events the news media must investigate. But reporters are not interested in communicating like a teacher because they know that they are in the entertainment business. And they love being in their entertainment business. So Howard, talking about gaffes is a waste of time. But you also don't care about improving the news media if it changes your sefl-image as a crusading journalist. That role is much more exciting than being a teacher. Therefore you won't ever advocate what must be done to improve your profession.
