Sloppy, Sloppy, Sloppy


I don't want to be "that guy" who complains about everything, but some radio and tv stories over the weekend really irritated me, and it was because of simple sloppiness.

It appears to be a slow weekend at the movie theaters.  All the reports I heard says box office receipts were 65 per cent below the same weekend last year.  End of story.

As the great Paul Harvey used to say, here is "the rest of the story."

The current big movie is "Garfield."

Last year at this time, we had the following:

"Indiana Jones"


"No Hard Feelings"



It's no wonder traffic and sales were down 65 per cent.  There were some blockbuster movies out at this time last year.  You know people are going to stay home if the big draw is "Garfield."

Stories like this need to be put in context.

You deserve better out of your broadcasters.
