Somewhere on another, presumably uncomfortable, plane of existence, William Randolph Hearst is laughing his ass off.
Modern journalism has abandoned even a pretense of objective reporting. Principals are all. Principles are someone else’s problem.
Actions are judged to be good or bad based on the actor. If our guy did it, it is either awesome or at least not worth mentioning. If their guy did, it’s literally worse than Hitler.
In Dr. Johnson’s day, Patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel. While that is still true today, anything done “For the Children” is the more modern version.

One more experience today's youth will never have
Bopping along to the radio in your car, and realizing the person in the car next to you is listening to the same song.

Hoping for dog productivity
I bought a powercap at Lowe's this evening, and now I'm just waiting to walk the dog and hoping he'll do something worth illuminating.

The era has now ended
Today I bought an iPhone 6s 64GB and began setting it up. So far the only thing that's really chafing my jimmies is the inability to sync Outlook data beyond contacts and calendar. Otherwise, it's going well.
If anyone has any apps they can't live without that they'd like to tell me about, go for it. As a recovering BlackBerry user, I'm not up on these things.

Closer...
My Otterbox Defender case & holster for an iPhone 6s arrived today. Presumably at some point I will get an iPhone for it.

Props to Otterbox
My personal cell phone is a Blackberry Q10 (don’t judge), which I carry in an Otterbox Defender case & holster. Yesterday, I broke one of the clips on the holster under unusual circumstances*.
I called Otterbox to see if I could buy a replacement holster, but was told they stopped making them for my phone a year ago, and don’t even have any parts left. I don’t fault them for this since the Q10 is no longer manufactured or sold by any major carrier.
Otterbox wanted to provide a warranty replacement that I hadn’t even asked for, so they asked if there were any other devices I needed a Defender & holster for. I said I was planning to get an iPhone 6s at some point, so they are sending me my color choice for that. I paid $2.99 for shipping, period.
It seems I am another step closer to getting an iPhone.

*If anyone is that interested, I was attending a graduation ceremony at the Patriot Center and stood for the national anthem** with my phone in my hand. The clip snagged on the seat’s armrest.
**Why is it impossible for anyone to just sing the anthem as arranged? I blame Whitney Houston for doing it well and inspiring thousands to do it poorly.
