Michael Jackson died on June 25th. Today is July 7th. Why is he still the lead story on the morning news broadcast? Is nothing happening nationally or locally that might merit a mention?
Remember when there were magazines devoted to the goings-on of Hollywood starlets? When teens read Tiger Beat (and whatever publication followed for the next generation of tweens and teens) to find out which singer/heart-throb loved another singer/heart-throb?
Was People magazine the beginning of the change in what we are fed as news or did it start on TV and People caught the wave? I'm not slamming People, Us or other magazines like them. None of us have to read them if we don't like them. Turning on local news stations for weather, traffic and perhaps to hear a bit of something newsworthy in your own backyard is a different story. Don't we all have certain expectations or am I the only one?
What I would really like is happy news story once in a while, wouldn't you?
With that in mind, I have some great news for you! Today is Chocolate Day! Thursday the 9th is National Sugar Cookie Day!! Sunday the 19th is National Ice Cream Day!!! and Tuesday the 28th is National Milk Chocolate Day!!!!
I don't know who to credit with originating these days of recognition, but I am here to bring you the tasty news.
