Not So Much

If you think it, speak it. At least most of the time. We read for stories and opinions, we listen to be piqued and we watch to learn, marvel and -- sometimes -- to be shocked.

But just as convinced oratory is completely appealing, ideas that are blown wayward by the winds are less than compelling. Nothing wrong with wavering, slightly. Or smartly blinking before you commit. As long as it doesn't turn to silly, smothering, indecisiveness.

Which is why I don't get the lust for this.

It's almost as if to please everyone, you have to resort to saying nothing.

Sadly, it seems the maddening appetite for reality has usurped the very core of what print should be: punditious. Yes, that's a new word. Fabulously fitting, though.
