As an active participant in this Global Village I continually scan the media to see if there any “comment worthy” news items. There have been two media snapshots this week which have raised an metaphoric eyebrow. These focal points of my journal are predominately my opinion (note the disclaimer) and are of course these perceptions are coloured with my unique experiences (more disclaimers). Given that one of my many interests is social interaction in a global construct, the two top of the pops winners were: the lovely and devilsh Heather Mills (Lady Muck-Racker) and our own Prime Minister, Mr. Kevin Rudd.
Now let’s look at Lady Muck first (I know – groan do we have to?). Before I mention the news item can I ask someone, why is that they gather up the worst images of this woman and post them in the media? Anyway that was a side-bar. I must continue. This Lady of Leisure and Treasures has most generously offered to contact Sir Pauls latest love interest and share her horrorid experiences and the potential “angry-ness” of Paul. Now isn’t that most magnamimous of her? How thoughtful is this woman? I mean taking the time out of her busy day of interviews, panel obligations and jug of water dumping escapades to sit down with the new close friend of Paul and tell her that she is in for a torrid time! Her kindness and thoughtfulness has no bounds – don’t you think? Then one has to consider, why did the Angelic-Saint-Like Beatle get angry? (if that is true of course – and I hardly think so!) Could it be that Our Lady of the Muck (see I can’t help myself – no self restraint) provoked that poor man (not that one would consider Sir Paul – poor – but then again in some ways he is a little bankrupt . I mean to say with her demure and respectful behaviour in the media and the court room antics coupled with threats, violent outbursts as public record why would anyone imagine that this magical modern-day minstrel finally stand up one day and say, “shut up, will you!” Personally I can’t understand it can you?
Moving right along into the political arena. The second media spark of interest was the demonstration of respect between Mr. Rudd toward Mr. Bush. From my point of view it was an elfish display of school boy antics. Even when Mr. Rudd stepped up to the podium, to answer to the Headmaster (aka the media) he still had the elves running around his aura. Was it disrespectful? Or was it an unforgivable act of the most dangerous? How many countries were wiped out under a tidal wave of terror? Sure it wasn’t the most respectful of social norms – actually it would probably come under the banner of social ab-norms (poetic license – put down the red pen). Personally, I forgive Mr. Rudd as it was refreshing to see a little frivolity emit from the perfect navy blue suit and carefully chosen tie.
That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
