Number of "Breaking News" items in my news ticker today: 46
Number of those having to do with the space shuttle: 39

Fuck, I hate the media. Guess I'll go home now and get bombarded with even more coverage. Maybe someone will do a nice long piece about how two of the wires used in the shuttle are made in countries that support terrorism. Or perhaps one about how the corrosive acid in some bird crap that hit the shuttle on the pad fourteen years ago may have compromised the integrity of the heat shielding tiles. Or perhaps someone will do a story about how I'm sad that the space shuttle blew up (again) and that people died, but I really don't care about every minute detail related to such.

In unrelated news, I am in a good ass mood today, boy, so don't even try to fuck it up, because you just be wastin' yo' time. Go ahead - pile a bunch of work on me, give me a parking ticket, tease me in the locker room... Punch me in the neck if you want. Ain't nothin' messin' wit' my flow today.

My favorite so far today:

"Shuttle disaster hurts U.S. retail sales"

"Hmmm... how come Old Navy didn't hit their $1B mark for the weekend? Couldn't be a shitty economy, threat of war, constant terrorism alerts, or the fact that media giants such as ourselves have pretty much scared the fuck out of people to the point where they're afraid to come out from under the bed. Must be those inconsiderate bastards who crashed their shuttle's fault!"

Oh well. At least they had the decency to not crash during the holiday shopping season.
