The morning shows are wall to wall coverage of the horrible plane crash (Is that redundant? Can we just assume a plane crash is horrible?) in Europe, and I rally wonder why some plane crashes catch the media’s attention and others do not. If I had to guess, it would be combination of who was on the plane, how much is going on elsewhere in the world, and how much access the media has to gory footage.
But really, these endless discussions with experts- doesn’t everyone know by now that they won’t know what happened for a while, so rushing to speculate about what caused the crash is pointless.
Also, why do so many airline experts seem to sport mustaches?
In other news, this foster experience has convinced me of one thing. While puppies are adorable, cute, wonderful to watch and grow, and whose breath and kisses may actually have restorative value ala the fountain of youth, they are also expensive, destructive, nonstop little monsters, and given the choice between a puppy or a several year old shelter rescue like Lily, I am on the Lily team every single time.
