Decline of the American Woman

Is the American woman an endangered species?  Is she losing the good fight for equality in the workplace, on television and in our political hearts?

Big Brother 9: Shitty Shorts and Poopy Panties

I am a fan of Big Brother on CBS television even though the “reality show” is filled with miscreants, the dishonorable, and the verifiably wacky.

Each season of Big Brother descends deeper into debauchery and a cruel malfeasance blasted on everyone within eyeshot and earshot of each other — and while one recoils from the idea of actually watching the disassembly of lives in real time — one cannot help but find delight in the evolutionary machinations of a house full of people fighting each other for a $500,000.00 USD prize.

This year’s Big Brother is the first “winter” edition, but that doesn’t mean the show, or the people starring in it, are any better than the previous summertime versions.

Big Brother 7 in the House

If there is a reality show on television I will watch it and I will enjoy it and I will — usually — be furious with the winner because the person who wins is rarely a kind and gentle spirit.
The sort of person who wins a reality television show is ordinarily cruel and misbegotten and hateful.
The biggest and the best of all the reality shows is Big Brother, now in its seventh season on CBS.
Last year Keyser Soze won Big Brother 6 and it was a huge disappointment.
I’m back with Big Brother this year because the live feeds are irresistible. To be able to watch live on the internet 24/7 what is happening inside the Big Brother house is a terrific treat if you are interested in human behavior.
Janelle and Kaysar work out together while plotting against others in the house:

The CSI Review

I was never a big CSI fan until six months ago when I stumbled onto a rerun. I enjoyed watching the show then and ever since that time I have been working overtime to get caught up on all three versions of the show. I realize the scientific process demonstrated on the show is silly so this review will concentrate on the acting and the storytelling.

Keyser Soze Wins Big Brother 6

Keyser Soze — aka “Maggie” — won $500,000 last night on the season finale of the CBS television reality show borefest Big Brother 6. I have watched all the Big Brother shows since the first season. I even paid to purchase the live internet feeds to watch the real show behind the “faked” broadcast shows that never demonstrate the true character of the players. The best year for Big Brother was the first.

Disintegration of the Evening News

I grew up watching Walter Cronkite doing the CBS Evening News. He was a class act back then; he retired much too early; he is now a brittle and humorless old man. The Old News Guard of the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s had an integrity that has been missing since the 1980’s in current news broadcasts.
