My Advice to the Media

Please be silent and let your burbling succumb to autumn's breath. Where your caterwauling and cacophony will hopefully meet a timely death. Please be silent as your thrumming is an affront to all who read this space. Where your clamor and your blaring have become the cause for our disgrace. Please be silent for there are far better voices straining to be heard. And repeating a prevarication in louder tones does not make it less absurd. Please be silent as your clatter is made bitter by a wretched desperate throng. Who feast upon each bit of meat you tear, no matter right or wrong. Please be silent as you add nothing of value to a discourse that has lost its humble way. With your pathetic desire for fear and chaos to make dark the light of day. So my friend, my dear dear friend, please be silent as there are things you need to hear. As when an Angel who by the Grace of God wants to whisper in your ear. "If you must create this hell on Earth, do it quietly and please contain your stress. You have kept us up for far too long and we all need to get some rest." The End *For those who are interested, I will be posting my cartoon, 'Bob's your Uncle' on my homepage. A new one will appear every second day or so.

yes, a very clear message that many would like to say to the media

During this time it is good to find a channel that doesn't do commercials like one of the movie channels. I get tired of hearing it and turn it on one of the music channels. Thanks for stopping by my page. I enjoyed reading your work. If Trump goes back in will they continue to put him down for another 4 years? Sara

The media moguls should read every word of this, David. Here's to 'throwing the bums out!' :) gw
