Morning Reads 11 November 2013

Armistice Day, Remembrance Day,Veterans Day. Whatever you call it, it is a reminder of the sacrifice that a few have made. Should you see a Veteran today, of any branch or nationality, say thanks or job well done. They did a tough job with little thought from many of the rest of us, it’s the least you can do.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed celebrating the birth of the United States Marine Corps yesterday and the hangover isn’t too bad. Though should you need it, go a head and grab a cup of coffee and some Advil. Here’s what else happened over the weekend.

              CNN started changing anchers months ago. They stopped hiring lower level producers, and then lowered the number of student level intents in Aug (CNN Atlanta uses alot of instate college students) . The producers noted in this piece were layed off Friday. The article was dated from Nov 8th. (three day old news).

                It had long been speculated when they hired Zucker that would happen (he specializes in longform, documentary-type stuff).

      Can’t wait for a CNN burst of reality TV. The potential in Georgia is tremendous from the tax incentives we’d offer CNN to the great supply of characters to follow around.

      The potential is so huge…the problem is where to start……

      Atlanta wives and fat kids are taken.

    So their Catholic father figure is more interested in his children who might return to the Catholic family after being wicked and ignoring all the values and treasures their spitual family has given them. Who knows, maybe if they return, the Pope might throw a huge party for them, while the good and well behave Catholic children are ignored…

    If only there was something in the bible that could help explain this to the hurt and neglicted well behaved children… I don’t know, maybe something like Luke 15:11-32… possibly.

      • Ellynn says:

        The VERY well-behaved Catholics do…

        Plus if the conservative Catholic faithful can’t figure out what text I am refering to in the first paragraph, they have bigger issues…

      Jubilosos, jubilosos
      Vivamos en gracia puesto que se puede.
      Saciaremos, saciaremos
      La sed ardorosa del Rey que no muere.
      Jubilosos, jubilosos
      Llevemos a Cristo un alma y mil más.

      Difundiendo la luz que ilumina
      La gracia divina del gran ideal.
      Difundiendo la luz que ilumina
      La gracia divina del gran ideal.

        I am not familiar with this spanish song or saying. It translates into a nice set of verses.
