A Day In March


Another fine mess.

Testing technique.

Another dog and I headed to the airport. On the way we stopped to visit friends. As we were leaving I saw this scene. It really didn’t look much in camera and after basic development. So, I tinkered. And, tinkered. I arrived at the picture that you see before you. I’m still not entirely sure about this one. But, as I always say this is an experimental blog.

I’d like to think the a high percentage of pictures that I publish on Storyteller are pretty good. But, we all know the truth. I know the truth. Sometimes, after living with a picture on the digital page, I wonder what I was thinking. Likely, I wasn’t. Thinking.

I was reading a general purpose blog. The owner fancies himself to be a sort of deep thinking anti-mainstream kind of guy. In short, he is populaist conspiracist. Sorry — not sorry — if I offend anybody with that. He also attacks the so-called lamestream media. He follows to YouTube based commenters who discuss CoVid-19.

I decided to listen to one of his speakers, a supposed doctor. A doctor who wants me to believe he is well informed. That he knows the truth.  He went through his list of things that the “lamestream” media wasn’t telling us. I knew everything that he discussed. Care to guess where I learned it from? If you said the “lamestream media,” you win a taco.

Sheesh.

When does this basic kind of BS stop?

I read two-and-a-half online newspapers everyday. The New York Times, The Washington Post and The New Orleans Times Picayune/Advocate. I pay for two. I refuse to pay for the local half of a paper until they actually report the news, write it, and edit, properly. That’s where I learned everything this wannabe doctor was rattling on about.

I say all of this to warn you. Don’t be fooled. Between bots, Russians and people who think they are smarter than we are, there is more fake news than real news. If you read something that doesn’t ring quite true with you, check other publications. Check sources if you can. Check the person or group writing about the topic. Check Snopes.

You’ll find the truth. It’s out there.
