    Lately I’ve been very busy blogging about every subject
    under the sun, I know to one who is not one, blogging can seem like taking only
    a few minutes to post, in reality that is all it takes, not the weeks of prep,
    research and thought that govern the most successful postings. So, its little
    wonder I fell a little behind my DVR viewing from which I glean most of my posted
    subjects. Finally, I got caught up to the CBS News Sunday Morning program to the
    day of the Tony awards, that featured most subjects that was flavored with most
    aspects of “show business”, like, acting, singing, wigging. make-up, dancing,
    music and lyrics, directing, lighting, costuming, staging, writing, book
    adaptation, and most importantly, “journalism”…

    Tony Awards... WHO CARES!!! As a guy who takes in at least five shows a year... WHO CARES ABOUT ACTORS VOTING AWARDS FOR THEMSELVES!?! Worse that the Oscars because it’s a much smaller audience.
    How is this different from tech gurus voting themselves awards at the end of every year?
    Or food services? Or Uber? Or Porn “stars”?

    Who here caught that the "Bloated as Hell" line was a reference to the 1976 anti-tv satire "Network" ?
    In it Tv is described as "indifferent to suffering, insensitive to joy...reducing all of life to the rubble of banality."
    It was developed into a play, and ran in 2017 with Cranston in the lead role.
