GOOD EVENING MR. & MRS. AMERICA AND ALL SHIPS AT SEA
Let's Go To Press.......
FLASH. Reno says yesterday that TWA 800 mystery "may never be
solved." Today they say, "could be mechanical failure."
Tomorrow it will be, "looking again at the missile angle." The
TWA 800 merry-go-round is brought to you by corporate drones, the
same folks who bring you plastic, "comedy" shows, and stirring
tales about how tough it is for the women. Also assisting in the
kaleidoscope of bomb/mechanical failure/missile reportage has
been the FBI, the same folks connected with Waco, Oklahoma City
bombing, and the Martin Luther King assassination.
FLASH. Mexicans Flood Into USA. Displaced American workers
don't like it, but corporate employers and yuppie stockholders
are pleased. They know the Almighty Stock Market will go up, up,
up with depressed wages, so they say, "Bienvenidos, amigos!" Why
bother bringing the factory to the Mexican when you can bring the
Mexican to the factory? Whining American families complain about
crap wages, but are reassured by perfectly poised college boys
who strike a learned pose and explain, "Only Mexicans will work
for crap wages."
FLASH. Bill Clinton says, "Economy is good." Meanwhile the gap
between haves and have-nots grows. Bill Clinton is no dummy: he
knows which side *he* wants to stay on. The rich man's press
says, "Let's keep things quiet until after November 5th."
FLASH. Thirst For O.J.'s Blood Heightens. Bored, frustrated
housewives, cruelly deprived of the pleasure of symbolically
castrating a black man, are once more salivating as Circus II
gets underway. Why, this news is so "important" it might just
pre-empt coverage of the OKC bombing trial!
FLASH. Yet Another "Hero" About To Be Born. It's rah-rah time
as corporate cheerleaders get set to unveil their latest "hero,"
astronaut Shannon Lucid. And won't handsome Bill Clinton look
nice in a clean new suit as he and the latest distraction from
real news are photographed together? America's heart will skip a
beat, and it will be Feel Good Time(tm). It's a Bold New
Day(tm), as womyn show that there's nothing they can't do!
FLASH. Aggrieved Persons Receiving E-mail From Disgruntled
Conspiracy Nut. On a sad note here in Happy Land(tm), there are
cranky malcontents peddling twisted so-called "news" via the
Internet. Perfectly Nice Happy Americans(tm) are having their
day ruined when they innocently read their e-mail; messages of a
disturbing nature make them all sad inside. What can be done?
FLASH. Don't Worry. Be Happy. Downhearted? It's all your
fault. Yes, you live in a world of lies. Yes, most of your
fellows have willingly sold themselves to lies. But you can take
advantage of Pollyanna Philosophy(tm). So what if you're worn
out from overwork. So what if the wolf is at the door. Just say
to yourself, "Is the glass half-empty or half-full?" That's sure
to put a Winning Smile(tm) back on your face! And hey: Just
relax. It's gonna be all Happy News(tm) from now until November
