And we have a hook
As I've told editors and friends
I've been on those things.
Back and forth across the NA continent
Over to Euro...back.
We have story hooks that will go on for *years*.
We have context...dialogue...grief...victims.
Wag the Dog.
30 people died in Bahdgad yesterday...*yawn*...blood..guts...little girls in ha jibs..arms and legs scattered in black cloth..fathers...brothers....mothers..hysteria...
No..this is *new*
Ah..like that French airliner coming back from Brazil.. one a few years back...remember that?...oh...one...fucking plane goes down...
oh...a few hundred more died in Faluja.
kids starving in Somalia..
13 year old girls raped in front of their mothers in Congo..
Soldiers bragging..."I rape them all"..
Same time line..
and then there is the Crimea.
It bleeds..it leads.
I feel sorry for the Sochi Handicapped games...
faced by a sich like this where a "name" band was dumped on us on the bill
at the last minute
I gently suggested we just go first..which we did (and we did massive local promotion} and we stole the show...to Carollyne's annoyance.,
So...in the future...the handicap games go *first*
Slap the glove in the face of the IOC.
All this political bullshit that is going on now..was all on standby for the fucking olympics...but no one cares about the handicapped.
From now on...Those games are *first* on the bill.
