Last month I had a terrific time airing a list of the grievances, just some of the routine annoyances, of my professional life. Well, that felt so good that I began making a similar list for my personal life. I hadn’t meant to share that personal list, but then a few of these sort of hit me between the eyes over the last few weeks, and I decided that there’s no purpose in having a blog if you can’t vent on whatever topics you choose. So, here goes (in no particular order):
Personal grievance #3 — Most commercial TV. When did the lowest common denominator get so low? Who the hell cares about Snookie! And who on earth are the Kardashians? Why would anyone waste time peering into the dysfunctional lifestyles of the stupid and ugly? I’m clearly not a good candidate for most consumer marketing, but I’m sure a reliable contributor to Masterpiece Theater.
