The News In A Nutshell

There are times,mon ami, that there would be slow news days and days wherein there would be news overload. I felt that today is such a day for news overload. Some of the news have been around for almost a week and some breaking news only happened today.

Cases in point, the ongoing news for almost a week were the floods at the Alberta province of Canada, the Edward Snowden( aka NSA leaker) saga,former South African President Nelson Mandela’s critical medical condition, actor James Gandolfini’s sudden death from a heart attack,Michael Jackson wrongful death trial and celebrity chef Paula Deen’s fiasco.

Breaking news today was the start of the Trayvon Martin murder case, the arrest of former New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez for murder and the US Supreme court decision in support for same sex marriage—revising DOMA(Defense of Marriage Act) and dropping Prop 8 in California.

So many news events going on. If you’re a news junkie, it’s like having so many choices to consider in following up the news details.

The news in a nutshell,indeed!

Who ever said that life’s boring probably hadn’t read the newspaper, gone online ,watched TV nor listening to the radio.

It’s really important to be aware of one’s surroundings.

Life can be unpredictable at times. It’s always good to be aware and prepared for anything.

Knowledge is power. Ignorance isn’t blissful at times.

Just my 2 cents on this matter!
