For CNN, especially, and the major network news, the only one truly newsworthy event occurred in the world yesterday evening in Minneapolis and has been rehashed endlessly since. Wall-to-wall coverage of nothing new and black and white file footage of every bridge collapse or wild swaying since film was invented.
Even our local news is covering it, as panicked political officials close, willy-nilly, local bridges in a lovely effort to shut our barn door after our neighbor's horse has run away.
I am sympathetic to all of the people affected by this bridge collapse. Now, what else is happening in the world?
