Canada is like a loft apartment over a really great party. -- Robin Williams Aww ... TV News?, Let's hear it for ABC News. As of this writing (August 13) there is a lot to report. Around the world we have a major terrorist move in Syria/Iraq with the US back in the fray. The Russians are mounting troops on the Ukraine border and preparing to send in aid while the Ukrainian government shells its.own people. Or what it claims are its own but people who like, some of them, the wrong country. In Africa ebola continues to spread and Sierra Leone is talking about a "cordon sanitaire" by surrounding and isolating its Eastern region to try and control the disease. A good tactic used against the Black Death and perhaps the only thing that can be done except, of course, it won't work. And that's only the beginning. Turkey re-elected its controversial semi-lslamist Erdogan its President and China, well China is always I:loing something or other and Pakistan is mad at India again. Here at home we continue to have strange weather, stranger politicians, and numerous cases of police brutality, not to mention a small problem on our southern borders. Hilary Clinton attacked Obama on foreign policy. Boehner is chatting with the Tea Party about immigration. There are floods and drought and fires, and rain in August in San Diego County. So ABC World News' half hour evening program day before yesterday was devoted to the death of Robin Williams.

There were vignettes about this and that amusing thing but, tiring of the infotainment, we had gone down to shut up the chickens. What happened to the news? There are lots of channels. NBC and CBS are...well. CNN is boring, Fox and MSNBC ideological and not to be trusted. If you want a good half hour summary at the end of the ' day....you could always stretch it to an hour for the PBS Newshour which is excellent if you're interested in the topics...and in this house they are batting about 250, excluding the cats who ignore everything. But there is hope. The BBC World News is good. And you can get excellent coverage on AI-Jazeera America. AI-Jazeera? Wake up ABC/CBS/NBC! Wake up America! Bring back Walter Cronkite, Huntley & Brinkley, Howard K. Smithy Okay, bring back the past. We were a great country once upon a time. And we had reas0nably
