Welcome to my state of Confusionism

     The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell.

     That is my quote of the day. It is somewhat tied to the news that once again, Freedom Communications, has found it necessary to lay off a dozen or so workers at the Gazette.  Although I was not one of the people joining the ranks of the unemployed, I certainly feel for those who were plucked from their desks into that statistic. I am somewhat certain my life will change because of it. 
     They said it was to focus on the digital side of news. Please. Anyone can get on the web and go to the Huffington Post, CNN, Fox, the local news station and get a quick overview of whatever kind of digital news you want. Pick your poison. But they don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. I think Freedom wants the least amount of operational expense possible for a sale. Almost to a bureau status. Let's face it, newspapers are bad business nowadays. It'll just continue to get worse because the venue is in critical condition. On life support.

I did go to Las Vegas. I want to get all those photos together before I post, so be patient. I have some  stories to tell and I won't disappoint on the wild and weird factor.

Hope these will give you a smile for awhile. Thanks to Coakley for sending the along.
