WAITING AND NEWS

OCCUPYING THOUGHTS
     Regardless whether Chief Justice Roberts writes it, and regardless of the outcome, the ruling on the health care reform will be remembered as one of the most anticipated, watched and debated. It is an automatic argument starter, however it comes out.
TRUTH IN THE NEWSROOM
       I entered my first newsroom as a green high school kid and have lived in them since.  The Aaron Sorkin script for the HBO series The Newsroom is brilliant and it speaks truth.  It demonstrates truth as well.  The pilot does a great job of showing how a breaking news story get's covered.  And I can't leave this without saying the tirade launched by actor Jeff Daniels, as a network anchor, is masterfully done. And it speaks truth.

EARTH AND SEA




 In the frames below it looks as though the stone has been carved with a saw.  Amazing power in the relentless surf.

All of the shots were gathered at one of our favorite hikes, 
Montana D' Oro State Park.
See you down the trail.

  3. Sorkin must have read Brinkley's Cronkite book, Walter felt the same way about the direction News has taken. I really liked the show, many critics hate it, maybe it hits too close to home?

  4. We're planning on watching Newsroom since we were big West Wing fans. Got it recorded and need to find the time. And I can't let the opportunity go by without commenting on your great pictures. Wonderful and always anticipated.
