Newspaper stuff

The little arts & entertainment tabloid insert in today's Vicad was an incoherent mishmash. I don't know if it was an accident or a purposive collaboration between graphics designer and reporter.
From a recent post on the Angry Journalist site:
I’m angry that my newspaper just let four seasoned, talented journalists go. Meanwhile, readers are treated to the self-absorbed prattle of a young staffer about her engagement, her tattoos and whatever pops into her head - usually with extra exclamation points. …

Is vapid, narcissistic writing a trend, the next big thing?

It's a society thing and is only reflected in the writing of so-called journalist. The only reason for me to be concerned about you is how it affects me, and so it goes.

I know you use the price of tongue as a guage of some sort but have you have you seen the price of beef. I, only a few minutes ago witnessed ribeye steak priced at $10.89 p/lb. This not at some high priced meat market. Talking Walmart here friend. My cattlemen friends are complaining of the low price they get for their cattle. What the he**?
Sorry, I know this is off topic but had to vent somewhere.
