week about the Republican National Convention.
As you might expect, most of them are coming
from Republicans who seem to believe, after
every speech, that they've just heard the most
impressive oratory since Lincoln's Gettysburg
There is a lot of coverage! Even on what some
of the same viewers usually call "the Liberal
But I'm not here to take sides.
The rhetoric from a Democratic convention
would be just as boring to me!
I mean, let's face it, what do you expect to hear!
The party looking to get in will tell you what a
terrible job those in power have done.
The party that's in power will tell you why those
trying to get in aren't good enough to do the job!
Sorry! I just can't watch!
And the sad part is....there are so many other
conventions that aren't getting coverage that might
be so much more interesting!
Take Las Vegas for instance.
There was a great convention there this month!
But how much coverage did you see of the
annual Star Trek Convention?!
Four "Captains" were there!
I might have watched some of that!
Next month the National Association of
Criminal Defense Attorneys will be meeting
there. There should be some great speeches
at that one!
The National Pecan Sheller's Association
will hold its convention in Vegas on Sept 11th.
And while you may say "nuts" to that one,
the "Motel 6" convention opens on the 29th.
(And they'll leave the light on for you!)
We don't know how long the annual "Office
Convention" in Scranton will survive now
that NBC has announced plans to shut down
Dunder Mifflin after the current series.
But what's been called one of the "most
unusual conventions" is held annually right
in the Wilkes-Barre area!
I wonder how much time the networks
will give to the "Inking The Valley Tattoo
and Sideshow Convention" scheduled for
the Woodlands in November?
A good side show attractions (as the
Political conventions demonstrate) can
always grab some body's attention!
Hope you're not a delegate ....and that
all your NEWS is good!
