The Brockton Enterprise is now a truly worthless paper. The deterioration came over a period of years and the transition I noticed initially was in the sports section. Use to be on Sunday you would have three or four notes columns on the various sports. No more. This also applies to the news other than that found in the “Toy Department, ” which is what they in the news biz call the sports department. Local news has shrunk. Coverage of stories seems inconsistent with lack of follow up. The Op-Ed page is something to just glance over. I realize this is the end result of changes in how we get our news but sitting down and reading the paper use to be entertaining, informative and enjoyable. Not anymore. I’ll drink my tea at the computer screen.
This week information has surfaced that Toxic is paying more than lip service to complaints by “alleged” CFO folks regarding information posted on that site. Good luck with that as the posters are a resilient and inventive lot. Reminds me of that scene in Karate Kid of trying to catch a fly with chop sticks. Great movie bit but virtually impossible. I’ll have the Tiki Buddha ship some sticks over for the next “gala.”
My wife has decided to paint the living room. Harmless enough project but she has now restored our aquarium and purchased some fish. In the world of fish my wife is Joseph Mengele as she experiments with various PH levels as the casualties mount. The rising death toll does have another negative side to it as the cats now realize some winter sports fun is fast disappearing.
