Pat Piper has made a career learning something new. As a journalist in the news business, “something new” occurs every hour so he’s becoming an expert at understanding stuff he never thought about.

    Selfie Land

    The Notre-Dame Cathedral is almost 9 centuries old. To put it another way, Pope Alexander was there when its foundation was set in stone in 1163. It’s where Napoleon got a job in 1804 and was the site of a novel by Victor Hugo in 1831.

    It’s majestic in design as well as history.

    When those flames were first seen, the world became one as we all watched the magnificent Gothic structure engulfed in flames.

    Enter social media.

    There were words about experiences walking inside and looking up to see rose windows. The Crown of Thorns, thought to have been worn by Jesus is brought out during Easter Week. All of this is good to share our feelings because it suggests maybe we are all just people with a common view of something much bigger than us.

    But selfies?

    “Here I am in front of the Cathedral.”

    A bit of advice.

    Within moments of Attorney General William Barr’s 4-page summary of Special Counsel Robert  Mueller’s 22-month investigation of possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia, President Trump started tweets about “no collusion” and “complete exoneration.”

    The summary said the President can not be exonerated.

    Within the same time frame, Democrats argued for the “entire” report to be made public, which means no redactions to protect specific sources, classified details or peripheral third parties.

    That idea is, to use a legal term, stupid.

    We are seeing politics on both sides of the aisle and between two of the three branches of government which looks more and more likely to be argued in the third branch of government: the courts.

    There’s a lot of talking without a lot of listening. Which brings me to…

    Cable shows have pundits talking about something nobody has seen which, unfortunately, is a complete waste of time, other than filling television’s all-too-used role of providing nothingness.

    Reaction requires seeing The Big Picture.

    Instead, we are seeing-hearing-reading all about “The If World” and little about “The Real World.”
