Hi, Again!

Wow, it's been a lot longer than I was hoping it to be.

I've been trying to work out what I want to say here, and I still haven't made a decision. But this morning I stupidly turned on the TV of all things to try and get some information about the Hicks trial in Guantanamo. I say stupidly, because in this country, morning TV is really just a vacuous superficial conservative waste of airspace and bandwidth. So what was I thinking?

So what did I learn? Well, firstly I learnt that the reporter for the 7 Morning Show, Rani Sadler is in no way shape or form impartial, objective or informed. She made ridiculous screwed up faces of disgust almost any time she needed to refer to David Hicks or his appearance. Referring to his being overweight and his inability to speak normally and the fact he was wearing his prison clothes was so incredibly and blatantly disrespectful and uncompassionate. The man has lived in solitary confinement for years. Putting aside the fact that he would not have been getting any physical exercise, healthy food and fresh air the man hasn't been "socialising" and you don't have to be a trained psychologist to know the effects that solitary confinement may have on a person's mental, emotional and spiritual health. The Today Show on Channel 9 wasn't much better - it gave Alexander Downer the platform to air his fascist ideas and promote the fear factor that his party continues to go on with.

So what did I really learn today? Not to turn the box on in the morning at all, anymore. And limit it at all other times.
