The news these days is hard to fathom. On one hand this week, I see conflicting headlines all over the place. Such as, “Covid spreading faster than ever,” along with, “Hospitals nationwide see flood of patients” (Source: MSN.com).
Before I write this column, I should disclose that as posted on Facebook, I’m in the hip pocket of the PSJA Family Matters slate because it has advertised with The Advance throughout this election. As such, my stories/columns are allegedly slanted in their favor, and according to another poster, The Advance News is “horrid.”
Okay, before anyone gets offended and thinks that I’m mocking those poor souls suffering from Alzheimer’s, I’m not. I lived the experience with a close family member for almost seven years, so I know the stress and emotional pain that comes tied to the disease.
I don’t like boring school board races where everybody gets along and has a Kumbaya moment. Booooring. Let the opposing sides shake things up a little and see what falls out. At least that’s my idea of what constitutes a good school board race.
A lot of things drive me crazy. Over the years, they must have added up, because by now, I’m probably certifiable. One of the big crazy-makers has been Social Media.
